    iCloud includes an email account. If you already have email and don't want to use the iCloud email as a second account just turn it off in Settings > iCloud. It won't affect how your other email accounts work one way or the other.

    Yes. Your iCloud email address will end in @me.com

    I'm not familiar with Optonline. You'll need to go to their support pages to find setup instructions. If they offer an IMAP account use that in preference to POP3.

    You will need to use the Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Add Account; Other option. Unless Optonline offers and Exchange server, in which case you can use the Microsoft Exchange option. That is also better than POP.
