No, you just put YOUR membership and role providers, not the 'i' and 'c' SharePoint proxy providers. See the example here: blogs.visigo.com/chriscoulson/…

If you can't sign in with them, ensure that your Security Token Service web.config has matching membership / connection string entries as your web application web.config.

That's probably the FBA Pack (SharePoint doesn't have an 'FBA User Management' screen, adding the FBA Pack adds it).

comment FBA Users - SMTP Settings
When you say the FBA user admin section, do you mean the user management page for the FBA Pack? If so, it uses SharePoint's email capability, same as the alerts, so it should work. Maybe try creating some new FBA accounts with other internal email addresses and see if they go through. Also, check the SharePoint log file - failed email sends should be logged there along with some more details of why it failed.

comment Creating Custom Login page for both windows and Forms based authentication
I usually use the link: <a href="/_windows/default.aspx?ReturnUrl=%2f_layouts%2f15%2fAuthenticate.aspx%3fSo‌​urce%3d%252F&Source=%2F">Windows Login</a> This will always redirect the user to the root of the site after login though. You'll need to add some backend logic (or potentially js) if you want to adjust to the exact page they were attempting to access.

comment Can I have FBA using .NET SQL Membership provider & AD using 2 custom log in pages?
Yes - if you want to login with Windows credentials using FBA, you'd use the LDAPMembershipProvider that you mentioned in your question as your membership provider. Do you want to use that AS WELL AS SQL Authentication? Because you could just put your sql users into AD and have it authenticate in a single place. If you want to have the two membership providers, you 'd have to setup two seperate zones. Alternatively you can build a custom membership provider, that joins the LDAPMembership provider and the SQLMembershipProvider. I'd recommend you just stick with the one provider though.
