You can add it at any time. It's better if you have a raw partition to swap
on, of course.
presumably, your /etc/fstab has an entry akin to this
/dev/ada0p3 none swap sw 0 0
You can add another if you have another partition ready. You can swap to a
file, too. Not recommended, but helpful in an emergency. You might try to
figure out what is consuming your existing swap.
