If you are running 10.0 then have a look at - it only works on
recent hardware and is known to support freebsd openbsd and linux

There is mention that 9.x can support bhyve and I think the EuroBSDCon
video gives details of how to do that.

If that is too young then you should look at qemu or virtualbox
