If you want to play with an SQL server, you are going to need one of the 
mysql-server ports/packages. Since this would be a new install for you and 
you don't really have any requirements I would suggest going with the newest 
production version (not a development release). The client is included with 
the server.

In a production environment, the client would often be installed on many 
systems but the server only on a few.

SQL servers are complicated things. Read through the documentation, follow 
examples and try them out for yourself.
