These two antimicrobial medications are not at all the same. Meteroidazole is of the notroimidazole family of antibiotics; sulfamethoxazole is a sulfa-based antimicrobial. They're used in different circumstances (usually) and with different patients.
Sulfamethoxazole is ruled out in cases of sulfa Allergies; not at all uncommon, and when this occurs, other antibiotics may be included. Metronidazole is closer to tetracycline, and has its set of limitations. It may also be used as a replacement for amoxycillin-type antibiotics.
Metronidazole is used mostly for anerobics and as an amebicide and anti-protozoal. It's used as first attempt to attack Clostridium dificile (C-Dif).
Sulfamethoxazole (SMX or SMZ) is used against UTI's and staph and strep infections (including MRSA). It works as a PABA antagonist.
In summary, they are not the same and would not typically be used for the same application.

A study was done by the Himalayan Institute of Medical Sciences where they used Metronidazole topical gel as an antifungal to help with Seborrheic Dermatitis and their results were successful. With that in mind I believe Metronidazole can be used successfully as a antifungal. Hope that helps
