Can i install the tmoblie software first copy the vendor.xml uninstall the tmoblie and install the nextel one and change the vendor.xml to the tmoblie one?

The only reason i want to do this is so it will setup the internet connection for me so it knows where to go.

You can not make an 7100i work on T-Mobile. No how, no way.

No. The 7100i uses the iDen network and is not compatible with the T-Mobile network. It is not a software/unlock/whatever issue. It simply can not be done. The 7100i can only be used on iDen network like Nextel. It can not be used on T-Mobile.

No.
Forget the words SIM and unlock for now.
You can not use the 7100i on ANY OTHER NETWORK besides Nextel (and their associates), which does not include T-Mobile.
The phone can not be used on T-Mobile.
You can not modify the phone to use it on T-Mobile.

It's a frequency thing. It's kinda like saying, if I change the numbers on my AM radio, can I tune in FM stations?
