Gloom Deluxe was really intended as an upgrade for power users, with 040/060 cards, graphics boards, etc. You can get it running at a reasonable speed with some tinkering, though. It'll also work on an expanded A500/A600 (minimum of a 68020).
Though the original Gloom doesn't look as good, it'll run full speed on an 030. Having said that, though, I seem to remember that Gloom Deluxe runs at a playable rate in full-screen mode on my 030 if I change the resolution to 2x1...
As for Breathless, it was actually bundled with the 1230-IV for a time. You're not missing anything if you can't get it to run, though.
WHDLoad installs of these games won't help the speed at all.
