Ok, so I create an authority. But now I don't know how to add or sign
the dovecot certificate with it.

Once you have established yourself as a CA, you then act like one. With
your user hat on, you create a certificate and a signing request and
send it to your CA, i.e. yourself. You put your CA hat on etcetera.
It is a pretty well documented process, even if a bit cumbersome.

I don't know to what extent any of this can be done with YaST, but none
of it is specific to openSUSE.
