Since you have a Voodoo video card, you're better off using Lewpy's Glide plugin... try that, that should help speed things up.

Pay special attention to the options marked with arrows.. This setting is for maximum graphic effects.. It may be slow on your system.. If so, set:

Framebuffer Access to "write"
Off-Screen Drawing to "extra-fbr"

Experimental flipping should always be enabled for FF7, 8, and 9..
As to your pixelated 2d backgrounds, you can try bilinear filtering but it messes up the backgrounds as well.. My personal choice is to play at 640x480 res with 4xFSAA on.. This gives FF9 the best 2d backgrounds and 3d objects.. I do realize though that the voodoo 4500 may only have 2xFSAA.. IMO, iori's spu is currently the best spu for FF9 at the moment.. Here is a shot so you can compare it to yours..
