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.
