Actually with TMPGEnc you can author a DVD from mpeg1 (VCD) files and it
won't re-render them or make them larger. You can fit about 5.5 hours of
VCD's onto one DVD and the quality stays the same. If you don't believe me
try it free for 30 days. It comes with a nice DVD writing tool as well. The
mpeg1 files on a VCD are of course the .dat files. You can change the file
extension to mpg or not.

Yes it's possible, the VCD format is mpeg1, and you can burn it on a 
DVD-R as a DVD Video, but you won't get a better quality from doing 
that, although the resulting file will be bigger, and it will take 
the program a long time to re-encode.
The simplest is probably to burn in the VCD format on a CD-R, and 
most DVD players can read that as well.

I'm a Mac user and don't know about your particular software, but it 
should be pretty easy to do.
