Yes there is wyswyg editor for TeX. Look among ports. I do not use one 
like most long time TeX users as it is useless. Every time you compile 
the tex file dvi file displayed via xdvi will be automatically
updated. You can also configure Emacs so that when you press tex-view it 
opens automatically xdvi file. Just use Emacs as it is configured for 
TeXing out of box.

You sound like using TeX is a bad thing and so difficult. It is not my 
11 year old nice uses for her homeworks.
