My .org domain name can have up to 5 email addresses. I’ve read how to create an email address using words like info, sales, webmaster, membership, etc.  

This is a volunteer organization and the board changes every 2 years. They can open/reply to an email, but most are not at all computer savvy. It’s important they not be able to edit the site or have access to my billing information. If each has a unique password, is that set up by me, and I give it to the various individuals?

Ideally they would be responsible for checking or sending mail, by going to the website, but knowing most probably won’t do it regularly, would I still have access to the email so a query still gets a reply?

Yes, if you are in charge of the Homestead account, you are in charge of setting up the email/passwords. You then provide them that information and they just go to the Webmail log in and can only log into their email. They will have no access to the account or the site editor.
Since you will have that log in information, you would be able to check them emails as well.
