Let's say I have mymail@gmail.com. What if I'll set mymail@gmail.com as an alias for mymail@outlook.com? If somebody will sent me mail to gmail.com, will I get the message on the outlook.com?
What if left mymail@gmail.com as an ailas of outlook, but delete the real gmail.com account? Will I still get mails sent by people to mymail@gmail.com?

No, the alias will only work for logging in to Microsoft services but not for email delivery.

A mail system cannot "claim" a foreign address for itself. As long as DNS MX records at gmail.com point to Gmail servers, all mail sent to anything@gmail.com will go to those Gmail servers – no exceptions.
