Yes.  BSD is just like Unix.  In fact, it *is* Unix.

I have that very setup on my laptop.  If you have Windows installed 
already, just begine the install of FreeBSD and choose the BSD boot 
manager.  It will set everything up for you.

Yes, but if you're unfamiliar with it, you might want to print out the 
instructions from the FreeBSD Handbook.
