Do they both serve the same purpose ?

I certainly wouldn't be using microspikes for glacier travel.

Can crampons be used for easier hikes? There is no point in getting both.

They serve the same purpose but for different mountain conditions. Get the microspikes for hikes and scrambles. For some scrambles you will need crampons if you get on hard packed snow on exposed slopes.
At want point in time you will need both... Just do not hike on the trails in crampons .... for your own safety
