OpenSSL Certificates

I was wondering if it was possible to sign my own security certificates for AIM 5.2 so i can have encryption enabled. (I'm doing this just for fun and so i can learn about OpenSSL). Is it possible to do this? I need to make a crt file to register the Certificate Authority with my windows machine and then have a pfx file to import into AIM. Can anyone tell me how to do this? Thanks. (I dont know a lot about openssl or certificates, so if anyone could give me a step by step way on how to do this i'd appreciate that..thanks).
