There are sections on these topics in the FreeBSD Handbook.
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/index.html

Specifically, installing new ports has its own section
 http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/ports.html
and for getting updates (generally through cvsup rather than directly
accessing cvs remotely), see the section on the "cutting edge":
