You need not any firewall for that.
Just use "ifconfig em0 staticarp" disable ARP table updates
for interface em0 (replace em0 with your interface name)
and load IP/MAC pairs into ARP table with "arp -f arps_em0" command
where file named "arps_em0" contains those pairs: 00:11:22:33:44:55 00:11:22:33:44:56 00:11:22:33:44:57
