Why do you think Option 2 should work?  What is bad about Option 1?  
What problem are you trying to solve?

The documentation is pretty clear. 
says that the file specified by SSLCetificateFile contains the 
certificate for the server and, optionally, the private key.  It does 
not mention anything about CA certificates.  On the other hand, 
says that SSLCertificateChainFile specifies the "all-in-one" file 
containing certificates from the server certificate up through and 
including the root CA certificate.
