You get a self-signed root CA (ca.pem), a server cert signed by
that CA (server.pem) and a client cert signed by the CA

So the server should have the CA cert and the server cert
configured, and the client should have the CA cert installed and
the client cert for auth.

You don't use the self-signed CA cert as the server cert. This is
basic CA stuff.

No idea, I'm not a Mac person. Homebrewed sounds like beer.

The only issues I'm aware of with openssl and macs would be to
disable tls1.2 as I think has already been mentioned, but I think
Apple disabled that anyway for the time being because it broke too
much stuff.
