Move the DLLs and PYDs whereever you want to put them.
use regsvr32.exe from Windows\System32 directory to register these DLLs and
PYD files (one by one), in their new location
Now when you run the executable, windows will provide it with the correct
file as and when it summons them.

Please know that its best to simply register the latest versions and let
them be used.

If you wish to provide the latest version with your executable, and If you
think your users may have an already registered version of the DLL (say
from an earlier install followed by a bad uninstall), you should have the
intended dll file (the latest version) and a <dll_name>.local file (just a
file with this name) in the same folder as your executable. Having this
arrangement, forces the executable to use the dll that is available
locally, instead of Windows providing it with the registered version.
Also know that the above is sometimes considered bad practice (
