This is wrong. As I said several times, /dev/sdb is the device
you need to write the image to, _not_ sdb1. Also fdisk is not
required in _any_ way here.

That is a fully valid FreeBSD command.

It has also been stated several times that a block size
of 1 MB can be expressed as 1M, 1m, and 1048576, depending
on what the dd version you're using does actually implement.
Again, /dev/sdb1 is the _wrong_ target device.
> bsd forum suggest not 1M but 1048576
Again, depends on the dd version. For FreeBSD's dd, bs=1M
works totally fine.

You can see a file's content with "more" _without_ mounting.
But you don't _need_ to, and what you see is of no advantage
You cannot mount a FreeBSD UFS partition natively on Ubuntu,
at least not without adding additional tools.
It hasn't been clear if you ever mounted someting properly.
After initializing the USB stick, boot it. Do not attempt to
mount it, it's neither required nor useful in any way.

That is also false. "FreeBSD 11.0-RELASE amd64" would be the
fully correct name of the version and architecture of the OS
to use. All this information is reflected in the file name
of the image, so you cannot accidentally use the wrong image
due to a naming misunderstanding.
It is up to you to use the _actual_ filename. Some examples
only say something like "dd if=filename.img of=/dev/da0 bs=1M",
and you need to replace "filename.img" with the actual name
of the image you want to use, instead of assuming that there
is some "magical file" filename.img that will reference the
correct actual image file. Placeholders are placeholders. :-)

Of course it is. :-)

As it should be.

It is neither needed nor helpful. I'd even say: Don't try it,
it won't work.

The FreeBSD image does contain 4 partitions, _none_ of them
is a FAT32 ("pcfs") type file system.

An empty directory. As expected.

This doesn't help you in any way. Try "more /dev/sda" or
"more /dev/sda1", you can "view" your Linux partitions in
the same way - it doesn't do anything.

It _is not_ important.

You will find the required information in the handbook. It
provides a good "script" on what will happen and which
decisions you can make.
Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0
