Hello,

Here is a scenario: Inside the organization we would like to use the digital signature, so we can sign the forms via dedicated signature fields that manage all workflow (which fields remain editable and which are read-only after signature). Final signature will by done by customer outside the organization and for that purpose we would like to use "Wet signature" - the function for "Sign document by typing or drawing signature". Is this even possible? How should the final signature field be set? Or should it be other field type? Thank you for your help.

The two things are not interchangeable. You can't use the Fill & Sign command with a signature field, or vice versa.

What you can do, though, is use an image of a "wet signature" as the appearance of your signature profile when digitally signing a field. That would help achieve both a "realistic" looking signature on the page (for those people who still care about that), while also digitally signing the file with all of its benefits (locking the document, the ability to view the signed version, the ability to verify the signature, etc.). You just need to help your customer set up their profile like that, which isn't always easy...
