I have a Windows Server 2012 R2 server running SQL Server 2012 with Reporting Services.

I want to be able to use the Reporting Services Report Manager over HTTPS instead of the default HTTP.

How can I install an SSL Certificate and apply it to SSRS? I do not have, nor want to install, ISS on this box.

You would use the Certificates snap-in in Microsoft Management Console (MMC.exe) to install your certificate, actually. And since an SSL certificate is a machine certificate, you want to be sure to open the Certificates snap-in for the local computer, not for your user.

The technet page on the process is here.

You can then use the Reporting Services Configuration tool to configure SQL Reporting Services to use your certificate. (Third section, "Bind SSL to a Reporting Services URL Reservation")
