I think that you should rather investigate the use of the --standalone certbot flag. With this option, certbot fires up a temporary web server in fact that's the web server integrated with the python interpreter only for the time necessary to serve the proof file. All that would be needed is to open the port 80 and said port would be really usable only the very limited time neeeded by certbot to serve the file, one time every 3 months. After that you may have more work to copy the certificate at the needed place and restart Apache by yourself.
