There should be no problem with converting those DVD to VCD. I'm not sure if the text is a subtitle on the kareoke DVD or if it's encoded within the video stream. If it's as a separate subtitle you have to encode the subtitle with the video if you are making a VCD as VCD doesn't support subtitles.
However if the text is within the video, then you can simply convert the DVD to a VCD. There's a lot of guides for that here at Videohelp. Check them out.
Audio may be a little tricky:
DVD audio may be simple 2 stream switchable, or could be VCD-style [L vs. R] channel switchable, or could be true "Karaoke-mode" DVD which is similar to normal 5.1 audio, but each channel is mixed live together (in ways decided by the user) to form the composite sound (e.g.: Vocal Guide + Harmony + Background Music (stereo)).
Depending on which type, there will be different methods to extract/combine/recode.
the dvd seems to have 2 different audio. lpcm and ac3. now the question is how do I convert this to vcd and keep the chapters ?
Rip DVD with DVD Decrypter & Demux streams.
MPEG2 video, as M2V
LPCM audio, as WAV
AC3 audio, as AC3
Chapter log, as ?TXT?
Many usual ways here...ex: D2V-->TMPGEnc-->M1V file
Make sure you create I-frames at the frames listed in the Chapter Log.
Open WAV in CoolEdit (or similar), mix to mono WAV. Save as "***_L.WAV"
Open AC3 in BeSweet, convert to PCM/WAV. Then do the same as LPCM WAV above, but save as "***_R.WAV"
Open both in CoolEdit (multitrack mode) and mix down to new Stereo WAV.
Convert to MP2 in TMPGEnc (224kbps, Dual Mono, 44100Hz)
Mux using TMPGEnc tools to create MPG
Make VCD in VCDEasy, using Chapter log to create chapters.
