[1] The FreeBSD project would have to commit resources too.  Its community
that provides those resources need to see tangible work that is useful to
the project before committing any resources to it.

For (a), (b), and (z), this is where you come in.  Define the goal.  Make a
plan to get there.  Assess the effort involved.  Convince your employer that
(a), (b) and (z) is worth it to him/her and that the result of (z) will
convince the FreeBSD project to commit the resources needed to integrate it. 
If they're happy, start working on (z) and bring it to the FreeBSD project
when you think it's ready.

If the FreeBSD project has to be involved in (a), (b), or (z), it will
have to commit its own resources to the effort.  See [1].

Just my humble observation as a fellow FreeBSD user...
