Looking for tutorial on how to install Exim4 on Debian
I use Debian 8, but any tutorial will suffice. Exim4 developer documentation is very complex for me and I do not have enough time.

Maybe the documentation on the debian wiki is already enough? Have a look here.

Installing it is simple enough.  su or sudo, then apt-get install exim4.

Configuring it is the problem, and for that it will be necessary to do a lot of Googling to find similar situation configurations that may work for you.

My own experience with a couple of debian systems supporting email ... imo, unless exim4 is required by the situation, postfix is an easier choice.

Third alternative, download a LAMP system image with exim4 already installed and working, and tune it to the target requirements.
