There are lots of players capabable of playing mp3 in
/usr/ports/multimedia/, e.g. audacious, amarok, xmms2, xmms (old).

Only iTunes can play restricted (DRM encumbered) aac files.

Not natively. You could try running the windows version of iTunes under
the wine emulator (/usr/ports/emulators/wine).

The /usr/ports/mail/libpst port contains a tool called readpst which can
convert them to e.g. mailbox (mbox) format. Thunderbird should be able
to import mbox files.
