You seem to be new to FreeBSD. In that case , I would recommend you to read the Handbook. It is very very good documentation.

Yes, FreeBSD can run off a single filesystem.

If /var is on  separate filesystem, then there is no way you can access anything inside /var without mounting /var first.

fsck is a utility which is used to check filesystem for consistency. For mounting a filesystem you should be using /sbin/mount and for unmounting you should use /sbin/unmount.
