    You can use the tool SelfSSL.exe.  Just follow the same steps you used to create a certificate, except chose Assign Existing Certificate instead of Create a New Certificate.

     Additional information can be found here (all I did was search for "self signed certificate iis6".

    You can set IIS to require SSL for individual files or folders as well as for the full site.  Same process, but select what you want secured before securing it.

    Once you got the ssl cert to the site, you can either set it at file/folder or even entire website.
    read those related article that you found in google.

    also typically you don't need to set the page, when redirect to login page or posting the form just make sure the url is in https.
