My question is whether or not there is anything I can contribute or maintain for freebsd without any skills. What direction should I take my education if I wish to be able to maintain a port. Is c++ programming required? What else is required?

You have posted a few similar threads on this subject but:

Are you actually using FreeBSD? Before even thinking of contributing,
why don't you give yourself 1 or 2 years of solid use of the operating
system? Install, uninstall, break, fix, reinstall, configure. You can
do this in a VM first and then maybe on real hardware. You don't go
from n00b to developer in one day.
