No. As far as I know changing the regional/language (this way will
also mass up other user programs) will only change the current
environment encoding.
but whatever charpage is used, Windows will convert the filename to
utf-16 for final representation in local file system...

I think so too. and so should luatex/pdftex. How about leave this task
to kpse implementation?
