A CSR is not Apache dependent. You need OpenSSL or OpenTLS to create the CSR, and after you will put the result certificate (signed by the authority) in your Apache server.

openssl req -newkey rsa:2048 -keyout server.key -out server.csr -nodes -subj /C=FR/O=COMPANY/CN=server.domain.tld permits to create the private key and the csr. Give the content of CSR file to your AC, and you will receive the cert file need to Apache.
