i'm not using Google (i'm analphabet) but usually, aliases of one account can't be 'downloaded' seperately. You just POP or IMPA the complete account.

As for composing: You can filter those mails after "To:" into separate folders, which represent the aliases, and set up a "From:" default in the folder properties. I think that would accomplish what your friend is asking for. Your friend miht want to check 'save sent message into this folder instead the Sent folder'. 

have fun
