It looks like you need to read the FreeBSD handbook online.

For GUI, you install xorg, which is in the ports tree at $PORTSDIR/x11/xorg : metaport for the full xorg installation.

For wireless networking, you will need to read the section in the FreeBSD Handbook, and be sure to check wpa_supplicant.

For printing, a lot depends on what kind of printer you have.  If you have HP printer, it becomes more complicated (I speak from experience), and you will need print/hplip.

Also, better to change the subject line since this is no longer about dual booting.
