There are a couple of ways that you can get bash and other software.
First, you can use sysinstall.  Read section 2.10.11 "Install
Packages" in the Handbook.  It can be accessed here:
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/install-post.html

Or, you can install the ports collection which also contains bash and
lots of other software.  To install the ports collection use portsnap.
 You can read about it in the Handbook section 24.3 "Portsnap: A Ports
Collection Update Tool".  That can be accessed here:
http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/updating-upgrading-portsnap.html
