Not sure if you have actually seen your guinea pig pull out rabbit hair, or if you have just noticed rabbit hair around. Guinea pigs generally do not mix well with other animals.

Is a short hair guinea pig better than a long hair guinea pig?

It all depends on if you like brushing your guinea pig a lot. You see, long hair guinea pigs are harder to groom and their hair gets full of dust and bedding and gets kind of nasty. But, short hair guinea pigs have more trouble keeping themselves warm. So it depends on if you are a brusher or a cuddler. If you are both, then I suggest getting a long hair and a short hair to share a cage together.
