for private key you need your private key - the one that you made before
making the CSR for thawte

for certificate file you need the trialThawte file

then for CA file you need a file that contains the Server Intermediate CA and Thawte Test CA Root
concatenated together

if you use passwords for the private key then you will
have one 

> 3. different pem format is used in RADIUS and is received from Thawte

no. FR uses PEM quite happily
