>> So, if you want to encrypt the traffic to an existing rsync daemon,
you'll need to use ssh (or maybe stunnel) to forward a local socket
address to the remote machine (which allows you to tell rsync to connect
to the local machine and have that connection get forwarded to the
remote machine via the secure tunnel) -- see the ssh docs for how to use
ssh to do that.

See cwrsync FAQ "How can I secure connections between rsync clients and
cwRsync servers ?"
for an ssh-tunneling example for rsync.
