Issue the command "man loader.conf" for details.

That syntax means see section 8 of the Unix manual for a description of
"loader". This is most easily accomplished by using the man command like
man 8 loader

There is no such command "xfree86", but if your system can't find kldload,
something is wrong.

/boot is a directory. If you just typed "/boot/" it would obviously give
you a permission error, since you're not allowed to access directories
in that fashon.
Try using "ls /boot" or "cd /boot" ... depending on what you're trying to
accomplish. I would suggest finding a Unix beginners tutorial on the
web somewhere to help get you familiarized with those commands. This one
There are lots of others, do a google search, then read through some of them
and try out the commands they try to teach you.

For the most part, no. You just have a bit to learn yet. Although I can't
think of a good reason why the system wouldn't be able to find kldload.
