I'm trying to grab all posts which are 'posts' and not in category '3' and '5' and which aren't 'pages'. Is this possible to do using one single get_posts()? Because I'm querying both actual posts and pages at the same time...

The get_posts() function only returns one post type at a time. So if you query for 'post_type' => 'post', by default you won't get any Pages returned.

This should work:

$wpse53292_posts = get_posts( array(
    'post_type' => 'post',
    'exclude'   => array( 3, 5 )
) );
