I don't know if I register SSL on my VPS or my shared hosting, where will it come from?
One more question, it is possible to create a SSL on my unmanaged VPS without register via a SSL provider?

thanks in advanced

You'll need to ask your provider whom they resell SSL with. SSL certificates are in the end (no matter where you order the from) issued by a certificate authority. Thawte, GeoTrust, Symantec and so on are examples of certificate authorities. Providers such as your own or NameCheap also resell their certificates, often at a lower price.

As for whether or not you can create an SSL without registering one - yes, you can. However, it won't be recognized by any visitor as a valid SSL certificate, as it would be self-signed.
