Where do I go to generate the CSR? I have an icon in IIS called 'SSL Settings' all options are greyed out with a message in the upper right stating ' The site does not have a secure binding (HTTPS) and cannot accept SSL connections.

As for the error message, you need to create a binding in IIS for HTTPS.
You should just be able to click on the site you want (I.e.Default Web Site), click Bindings on the right hand side, then add a new one with HTTPS as the type. Enter your IP address and hostname and you should be good to go.
