You really need to get on the FreeBSD web site and start reading.
It has all the information there and links to even more discussions.
Learn to use Google.

You cannot expect people on the list to do all your homework for you.
You have to learn this stuff and then ask questions about the parts
you have trouble with.    This stuff is already written up.   We
should not have to write it all again.

FreeBSD is a BSD family UNIX.   Now look up what that means.

Only if you need them.   I have never had need for tomcat or python
or Ajax, but use Apache httpd web server a lot and some PHP.
You need to think out what you are doing, study up on it and then
do some experimenting.   Since you plan to wipe that W98 machine 
and start over on it, then you can easily read and experiment and
restart several times without any loss.   Then you can learn it well.

Have fun,
