Sendmail and exim are both mail transport agents (mtas), so you use either 
sendmail, the oldest mta or exim, which is easyer to set up.
There is another mta which is popular called postfix.
As suggested before, use exim.  there is a link to the exim binary  called 
sendmail, so you can just leave your alpine config to refer to sendmail 
and exim will be used.
You are correct in that  you can have fetchmail poll different pop servers 
for different users from the same configuration file, but I really suggest 
that you first get one account working properly before starting to mess 
with extra ones.
You will never use sendmail and exim both on the same machine, they do the 
same job.
HTH, Willem
