How to conect inside wires for fan and lights
If you want to run the fan and light separately and the light is on a 3 way switch you will need 2 dimmers and one of them will be a 3 way dimmer. You need a 3 wire cable running up to the ceiling fan and the 3 way 3 wire cable coming from the one switch box to the other switch box. If it runs to the light first and then to the other switch box you would need to replace one of the 3 wire cables with a 4 wire or 5 wire cable. It's hard to find a wiring diagram for your situation unless you give a lot more details. If you can't explain what you have then this is complicated enough to have someone knowledgeable on site.
