The PostScript file can be created with the "File" option in the
command menu (or via `C-c C-c File RET' if you prefer keyboard
access).  For dvipdfm you could define a new command for
`TeX-command-list' e.g. like this:

(eval-after-load "tex"
  '(add-to-list 'TeX-command-list
                '("dvipdfm" "dvipdfm %d" TeX-run-command t t) t))

It is usually better to use `add-to-list' instead of customizing
`TeX-command-list' directly because the default won't be overwritten
permanently.  This may be important in case the variable's default is
changed in an update of AUCTeX.

If you are not satisfied with the behavior of the new command, have a
look at its doc string with `C-h v TeX-command-list RET' and modify
the command entry shown above according to it.
