Hi Juan and welcome to the FreeBSD community. You might try VirtualBox,
which is similar to VMWare Workstation but free and part of the ports

There's probably a package for it - try:

pkg_add -r virtualbox

However, you may struggle to install OS/X - Apple have some reasonable
technical restrictions in place, and a licensing restriction also that
prevents use on non Apple hardware. As a result you probably are not
licensed to, and may not physically be able to, use OS/X on your new PC.
