Your issues seem generic to CUPS, so you'll probably reach more relevant
experts in CUPS' user-support forum rather than FreeBSD's.

The base page for CUPS has a button labeled "Add Printer".
On *my* setup, anyway.
What it really does is add a queue, so you can do it any number of times
for the same physical printer.
