First you need to make clear to us if you want to "redirect" requests,
or if you want to "proxy" them. These two things are fundamentally
different. You use the term "redirect" in your explanation, but in
your examples you are proxying.

Proxying http -> https is something apache doesn't do out of the box.
It is alos something you might not need. It's pretty pointless to
secure the internal part of a communication when you're not securing
the external part.
