How is Doppelgänger a synonome for twin? Though a lot of twins look a like that's not always the case. Maybe sibling would be a better fit?

Not really - sibling doesn't imply twin. The meaning is fairly obvious as it is.

Well people say they look like twins and things like that, meanng they look a lot alike, and not that they actually think they were separated at birth
