Personally, I prefer IPFW for simple, single-server configurations. It is somewhat easier to manage.
Both IPFW and IPF are covered in the FreeBSD Handbook, at http://www.freebsd.org. You will find more detailed documentation for both with a web search.

Well, the setup and loading of Postgresql9.6 seems to have completed
successfully. Now, before this can go live I need to set up the
firewall. I am used to IPTables on CentOS but have no experience with
IPFilter or PF.
First, which firewall, of the three I read are available (IPFW,
IPFilter and PF is the recommended choice?
Which of them, if any, have FW for dummies like tools/guides?
