I think it's about that time the Th'Nor and T'Loth's were coming out in large numbers, and might well be capable of holding back the Dilgar for a while. The G'Quan would probably be speeded up in development.

A good portion of their fleets would be destroyed, leaving them mostly incapable of continuing to expand. I see them claiming the territory they've already taken for themselves and solidifying their hold there, but being too crippled to try anything further.

But if it's just the loss of a few fleets and a "defeat" due to public opinion turning against the war, it won't be much of a problem.

It's hard to judge such things from one individual and a few snippets of accusations and info from the other side, but if things like "she infected a whole species with a deadly disease just to see how long it would take them to die" are even remotely true then Deathwalker certainly seemed to be on the evil side, and given that she seemed to be operating with government support... yeah, evil.
But they seemed to be concerned with the minor races. I'd guess they took Earth on largely because it was an unknown quantity at the time - nobody knew much about Earth, and the Dilgar probably took them to be just another minor species and got the shock of their life - literally - when they realised what they'd tangled with.
I'd guess that the Dilgar would know better than to take on the Narn or Centuri, let alone the Minbari. But if they won their war and conquered many of the minor powers I think they'd be elevated to the big table themselves, taking the place Earth got in the actual B5 universe. And without Humans there to gather everyone and unite them... the Shadows and Vorlons would have tromped over everyone as usual.
