Your pokemon gain EVs by battling other pokemon, so yes, they will gain some EXP in the process. What the Psypoke guide meant was that it is recommended to finish EV training your pokemon, (frequently against weaker pokemon that don't give you much EXP), and then (when you have your EVs maxed) simply train them to gain EXP, such as against the Elite Four.

As the EV guide says, if your pokemon does not have 510 Total EVs, it will gain EVs by battling other pokemon, regardless of level. However, unless you use a bunch of rare candies, it's very difficult to get a pokemon to level 100 without maxing out it's EVs along the way.

If you want to give your Pokemon specific EVs, i.e. Speed and Attack, which are best for Ninjask, train against the specific Pokemon in the guide. Your Pokemon can have a max of 255 EVs per stat, but you need not go further than 252. Additionally, if your Pokemon holds the Macho Brace your EV growth is doubled (a Gyarados normally gives 2 Atk EVs. Defeating it with Ninjask holding Macho Brace would grant 4). Just do this until you get 510 (maximum) EVs, and go get an Effort Ribbon from the woman in Slateport. (I recommend for a Ninjask, 6 HP/252 Atk/252 Speed, since it's not likely to survive even one hit.)

Also if you swap out a Pokemon and kill the wild Pokemon with another one of your own, they will both gain EVs (e.g. if you swap out against the Gyarados and Ninjask has the Macho Brace, the others will get 2 Atk EVs unless theirs are maxed, and Ninjask will still get 4). It's the way to train low-level Pokemon for EVs.

After that, you can just raise your Pokemon in the E4 and watch those stats build up like crazy.

1) Please, do not post in all caps. It is confusing and totally unnecessary.
2) 4 EVs in a stat = +1 to that stat. For example, a Pidgeot with 52 EVs in Attack, at lvl 100, would have 13 more Attack than a Pidgeot with no EVs in Attack at lvl 100. The gains themselves are spread evenly across levels. You won't receive them all at once; they are given gradually.
3) The traits of a sweeper are high attack power and speed to defeat the foe swiftly. As such, the only traits sweepers need are Atk, SpAtk, and Speed. (However if your sweeper is physical, you do not need to train SpAtk, and so on.)
4) How can a Pidgeot have an attack stat of only 50??
