First, Dolby Surround will work on a DPL mixer. Second, when you say "stereo pseudo surround" you make it sound like it's a stereo signal, with no surround information, being converted into 5.1. Where in reality it will give you a single surround channel because the channel is matrix-encoded into the audio. While it is not 5.1 surround sound, it still has some basic surround information (which is left, center, right, and mono surround).
no it won't. DPL mixing only supports DPL, the device must support mixing for dolby surround, otherwise its just stereo.

As it is, sound cards can immitate this now anyway,
