Take a look at ng_fec, it implements Cisco's EtherChannel.

ng_one2many can also be used to bond two or more interfaces,
but keep in mind that it is not based on any standard and
it will handle of course only outgoing traffic since incoming
traffic must be handled from the remote side, the ethernet

There are plenty of choices to implement such a thing, beyond
those two approaches... If you want some ideas, please state
your needs.
