setting up a ports infrastructure outside of /usr/ports

I would like to ports some programs but before I will start, I would 
like to have a separate directory for it. So so my question is:

Is it possible:

1. to have the ports directory in my home directory? I
     think yes.

2. to build and to install a port as normal user to
    a via PREFIX specified directory?

3. to use a different pkgdb directory than /var/db/pkg for
    the ports build in this manner?
