Welcome to the Cloudflare Community. :logodrop:

You will not add a new website in Cloudflare. The dashboard will reject your attempt to add it. The subdomain is managed in the existing website in Cloudflare.

Email for a subdomain is no different than email at your apex. Instead of naming the MX and SPF records @, you will use the name of the subdomain instead. Your DKIM records will need to be created relative to the subdomain.

MX records example:

subdomain MX 10
subdomain MX 20

SPF record example:

subdomain TXT v=spf1 -all

Your DKIM name will be formatted as selector._domainkey.subdomain
