You can learn about installing and using FreeBSD by reading the online 
handbook at:

Chapter 23 has sections for both FTP and Apache Web Server.

Other good, online resources include:

Yes, you can put ftp accessible areas and web pages on separate hard 
drives.  This may get a little complicated if you're allowing users to 
both ftp to/from their home directories and have personal web pages in 
a public folder within their home directories.
