First, please learn to break your lines at about 70 characters. It makes
it easier to reply appropriately.
Second, you should learn to use a text editor - most particularly
the vi(1) editor wihch is distributed in /usr/bin/vi
That will help your system administration a whole lot.
Here is a web page with simplified info on using vi on a basic level.
Third, to append to a file instead of replacing it when using echo double
the '>' character - as in >>
In your example, it would be: echo 'slim_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
