The default location is /etc/X11/xorg.conf. If the file
hasn't been generated yet, you can run "Xorg -configure"
as root. The result will be /root/ which you
can copy to the mentioned location and name. When you run
X with all the autodetect magic, this file won't need to
exist at all, but for "traditional" settings, especially
when the autodetection does not work as intended, you can
have X use this file and put all your "global X settings"
in there.

In many cases, an "incomplete file" will also work (so
most of the settings will be autodetected).

For basics see The FreeBSD Handbook, chapter 6.4:

Maybe in relation to HAL keep this helpful article in mind:

But as you're running in a VM, it probably won't apply.
I'll mention it anyway, just in case, as you're doing
"manual input configuration" at least for the mouse here.
