I know there are mixer-functions to control input and output audiolines.

I want to fade down the volume of a waveplaying program (ie. RealPlayer) and mix this with wavesound from my own program in my own volume setting, and finally fade up the volume of the other waveplaying program.
Is this possible using the mixer-functions? Is this possible at all?

You can use the Audio Mixer functions to change the volume. However, you can't mix it with your own wave audio. The player owns the audio device exclusively. You can use DirectSound to mix your own wave audio files.
