I am used to the virtual-server configuration as I have multiple radius based services running on different ports, but am not sure how to only proxy those entries on that particular virtual server and not the other virtual servers I have running on this server. At a first read/glance, it looks like the proxy settings might apply to all virtual servers instead of just the one on port 1818 that I am defining.

Just use a listen block within the virtual server { } configuration. There's a template one in radiusd.conf
