start with the below and also search for guides on the subject.

You should enable SSL for your VPS from Virtualmin Edit Virtual Server / Enabled features /SSL website enabled?

Then from Server Configuration / Manage SSL Certificate you can manage your certificate copy the certificate to Postfix and to dovecot. Note that postfix accept only once certificate.

Yes, you can access the email from thunderbird using SSL. you have to accept and add the certificate exception when asked.
