Dear Brother / Sister,
The verses of the Quran are also duas. However, not all duas are verses; therefore, it is necessary to distinguish between them.
It is not permissible to touch the Quran without wudu. However, the verses of the Quran can be read bareheaded, without wudu if you do not touch it, by looking at it or by heart.
Not all duas are revelation. For instance, some duas are duas of Islamic scholars. They can also be said without wudu and bareheaded; it is also permissible to touch them without wudu.
