RE: OpenThread

OpenThread is available only in Windows 2000+.
You can use native API routine NtOpenThread to do your task.
Prototype:

NTSYSAPI
NTSTATUS
NTAPI
NtOpenThread (
OUT PHANDLE ThreadHandle,
IN ACCESS_MASK DesiredAccess,
IN POBJECT_ATTRIBUTES ObjectAttributes,
IN PCLIENT_ID ClientId OPTIONAL
);

You should do this:
NTSTATUS Status;
CLIENT_ID ClientId;
HANDLE Handle;
OBJECT_ATTRIBUTES ObjAttr;

InitializeObjectAttributes(&ObjAttr, NULL, 0, NULL, NULL);
ClientId.UniqueProcess = <Process ID>;
ClientId.UniqueThread = <Thread ID>;
Status = NtOpenThread(&Handle, THREAD_???, &ObjAttr, &ClientId);
....
