You can learn about installing and using FreeBSD by reading the online
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.
Best of luck,
