I'm not sure what you are asking, but if you need to run DOS or want to learn DOS, you'd be much better off running it in a virtual machine.

I do know there are going to be problems syncing files, keeping up with created data, etc., 'cause DOS 5 cannot read NTFS, modern Windows is not going to cooperate very well with FAT16. Wait, can DOS 5 read FAT32? If so, perhaps this dual boot might work; however, what about the long file names, I don't remember DOS 5 handling long file names.

I don't know, I only remember DOS 6 and 6.2. Haven't really thought about that since win 2000 or so. Basically the things we would have used DOS for we just do from a command Prompt now.

I' Using MS-DOS 5.0 16Bit to compile code in real mode on my 64Bit machine.

I have already depleted the internet's public knowledge regarding this problem being faced when attempting to dual boot MS-DOS 5.0 16Bit and any modern Windows such as [7] or [8] 64Bit.

My instalment is perfectly running already, just need some help with what I have posted above.

Most notably the boot loader path for the DOS, we know Windows's boot loader is winload.exe, but what is DOS's?

I do have an idea I'm working on in the mean time, but I will post that next time if it's viable solution.
