At least with postfix you'll have to integrate SA manually. It should be
the same with Exim.

You may want to have a look at this:

http://dman.ddts.net/~dman/config_docs/exim3_spamassassin.html

Note: I do not use Exim so i don't know if this site is what you need.

But using .procmailrc will be the most simple way to do it IMO.

Yes i think so. At least my SA started using Razor when i installed the
package "razor".

Nope, just the default SPAM-processing package ;)
