Hi,
In general cloudflare does not care about technical aspects of your site except DNS because it will take the content from there.
The process to setup cloudflare is straightforward and is described here

Tip: Best research problems over the past few years with CloudFlare SSL carefully, as CloudFlare has continual SSL problems.

Better to just allocate an https://LetsEncrypt.org cert which has provided free certs for years now.

To use a https://LetsEncrypt.org cert, open a ticket with your hosting company for assistance... or... most hosting companies have built in cert tools which already https://LetsEncrypt.org, so check hosting docs first.

If you're self hosting, then using https://LetsEncrypt.org will likely be very easy for you.
