If the browser does not want to display your file, it will open the save dialog (which is what I guess you mean by download manager)

A zip file normally does just that, and exe too.

so just by haivn a link to the exe and the zip is enough and the save dialog pops up automatically.

The name will be the name of your file

<A HREF="myFile.zip" >Download myFile.zip</A>

Not possible, sorry.
You would need a server process and my guess is that you do not want that.

Why change the extenstion, by the way?
