Using in-kernel nat is probably a better choice IMHO.

read `man ipfw(8)`

The section labeled EXAMPLES has exactly what you need.
Here is a snippet from the manpage to get you started:


Then to configure nat instance 123 to alias all the outgoing traffic with
ip, blocking all incoming connections, trying to keep same
ports on both sides, clearing aliasing table on address change and keep-
ing a log of traffic/link statistics:

    ipfw nat 123 config ip log deny_in reset same_ports


           ipfw nat 123 config redirect_addr
                           redirect_port tcp 500
                           redirect_proto udp
                          # LSNAT
                           redirect_port tcp,
                                   500        # LSNAT
