Have you created a PV and VG to be able to actually use that space on PVE?

Once you do that, you can add that VG to PVE storage providers.

You could then  add a LVM based disk, from that storage provider, to the
Freenas VM.

Don't think that a virtualized Freenas is a good idea, especially for
production use, but that's up to you ...

i want to make remaining space of the two SSD boot disks available to
Proxmox VMs, so i created a forth Partition on those of type "LVM".

How can i make these available in Disks->LVM (i.e. proxmox managed LVM
storage), as the webgui only lets select me whole disks as LVM storage ?

I want to add LVM volumes on SSD to virtual machine to be used as ZFS
Slog/L2Arc in virtual FreeNas.
