Gmail is an integral part of the phone and can handle multiple GMail addresses.

However if you don't want to use the GMail account (not sure why as it is the best email client available for android), then you want to do the following from the home screen (assuming you are JB - if not look for setting called Accounts - it will be similar to these instructions):

Pull down notification shade and turn the sync option on. Sync has to be on to turn syncable options on and off.

From the Home screen - Menu - Settings. Under Accounts options press Google - which will bring up all your google accounts. Under accounts it will list each google account set up with the phone. Go into each account by pressing on it and then untick the gmail option.
(You can use this to treat all items that sync the same way - the options will vary slightly but at least it does give you control over what to sync and how often (sometimes)).

Then from home screen. Menu - Settings - Applications manager. Swipe screen towards the right, until the All Tab is showing. Scroll down until you get GMail. Press on Gmail. Press on the following buttons - Clear Defaults, Clear Cache, Clear Data, and Force Stop if they aren't greyed out.

And I am afraid that is the best you can do, unless you want to root and put a dev rom on and then not install gmail, or uninstall it.
