1) vadddomain -d /home/virtual ...
2) Maybe it's easier to
   * usermod -d /home/virtual vpopmail
   * recompile vpopmail
   * modify paths in /var/qmail/assign
   * modify paths in /home/vpopmail/domains/*/.qmail-*
 [ * modify paths in /home/vpopmail/domains/*/*/.qmail ]

This way you don't have to '-d' parameter every vadddomain call, but
still have domains mail and can have their HTDOCS in /home/virtual.

Apache can be run as user vpopmail, if it only serves domains from
your vpopmail name space.
Two Apaches with x (x >= 2) IP addresses solve the problem of domain
not handled by vpopmail being served. First one running as vpopmail,
second (third, whatever) one running as usual web user.

What's your concrete problem/desire/imagination/wish?
Best regards
