At the risk of sounding really stupid... What's the difference between
Webmin and VirtualMin? In a nutshell? I read the VirtualMin page and I
can't really tell that the difference or additional features is all that

There are no stupid questions as there are only stupid answers ;-)
VirtualMin is a "all in one place" to setup Virtual Domains with
Webmin, if you want to have it short.
Normally you must go to each module involved separately to get a
Virtual Domain run. That means:
a) Setup a Unix-User
b) Setup a Webmin-User (if needed/wanted)
c) Setup a DNS zone in Bind
d) Then setup sendmail/postfix/qmail for MX-services
e) Then reach for Apache to have the Website up
f) Maybe go to MySQL/PostgreSQP to setup a database
g) Notify customer of all these things
With VirtualMin you can do this all in _one_ single run after
configuring the module according to your needs and wishes.
That was the easiest way to describe it, I think.
