Exim isn't a DNS server, so you'll need to configure your DNS service elsewhere.

That is achievable with Exim, and I'd expect cPanel to let you configure it, but this isn't a cPanel mailing list. cPanel provides the GUI for your server, and I'm afraid I don't have familiarity with either the GUI or with the configuration files that it interfaces with.

That's also achievable with Exim. It may not be configurable with cPanel, since it's an unusual requirement. Again, a cPanel list might be a better place to get answers.
