when i install spftware, it creates a file that contain junk charavtes (certifocate.pem)

-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
kjdfskjf hg fdjhglkfghlkfjjksdnklfdjkdjfksdjfklsdjf098sdf98sdfn8sdf8s9dfnsd8fn9dn8n9
jkwehjwfhkjhfkhegkehgkrkj09586n98697059876079-06597667069709679609706970

-----END CERTIFICATE-----


is this just one value or does each line represents different key

because when i do "wc -l certificate.pm"it says
  19 certificates.pem


can i add my own certificate on client and server instead of the one bundled with software

there's only one certificate between -----begin cert----- and -----end cert----
+ you need to read up on SSL : http://tldp.org/HOWTO/SSL-Certificates-HOWTO/ and maybe even x.509 : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X.509 and related pages from there, to get you up to speed with public key cryptography you're about to deal with.

yes, the client can use their key pairs if they want to and
yes, you can probably use your own certs instead of what was bundled, but then you might break the web of trust that might be provided with the bundled certs

for more certain answers ask more specifically. especially not withholding the software title.
