Is the above possible? If I have two windows open both named "CRAZY WINDOW NAME" one being a program/executable and another being "explorer", is it possible to just target the explorer window and leave the program/executable alone?

You can filter Cmdow's output with FINDSTR and a regular expression:-

for /f %%a in ('cmdow /b ^| findstr "explorer.*CRAZY WINDOW NAME"') do (
  cmdow %%a /act

Note the pipe character (|) has been 'escaped' using a carat (^). Adjust the options in the second use of Cmdow to suit your requirements.
