Yes to both, if you enable pf. The advanced routing I think you're asking
about is generally described as 'policy based routing' -- look for the
documentation on the 'route-to' keyword in pf rulesets:
If you implement CARP on a firewall pair, then you will need a carp0
pseudo interface -- this can be created and configured in /etc/rc.conf like
ifconfig_carp0="vhid 100 pass ~not~telling~you~ 192.0.2.1/24"
FreeBSD-8.0 now also has the capability of using a per-application routing
table, so you can change the routes for (say) apache or squid independently
of what applies for the rest of the system. See setfib(1) for more
information, plus recent examples of implementing this in RC scripts on
the ports mailing list.
