    All my DNS is with DNS Made Easy. In order for webmail.domain.com to work, do I need to make a CNAME or A record pointing to the VPS IP with 'webmail'?

    Found proxy domains info here: Bypass firewalls with cPanel proxy subdomains - InMotion Hosting

    If my DNS isn't in the WHM/cPanel, what do I need to do with the DNS records in my DNS Made Easy account to get webmail, cpanel, and whm sub domains to work?

    The domain I currently access whm/cpanel is in this format: subdomain.domain.com so I'm not even sure I can make webmail.subdomain.domain.com or whm.subdomain.domain.com, cpanel.subdomain.domain.com.

    I don't believe you can. You might refer to the docs at your DNS provider:
    help.dnsmadeeasy.com/view-tutorials/create-delegate-subdomain-managed-dns-domain/

    Proxy subdomains are created with settings via WHM:
    Tweak Settings - Domains - 11.52 Documentation - cPanel Documentation
    Tweak Settings - Redirection - 11.52 Documentation - cPanel Documentation
    Proxy Subdomains Use the cPanel Service SSL - cPanel Knowledge Base - cPanel Documentation

    I know how to make subdomains. The issue with that WHM is installed as a subdomain and not at root domain, which makes all these instructions confusing.

    You don't make a new subdomain for this, enabling the settings in WHM creates the proper proxy domains for all accounts for you.
