1. This was referenced on the BSD subreddit with openBSD as a firewall:

I may consider purchasing this to try out pf and get more in depth
knowledge of openBSD.

I haven't looked closely enough at it to make 100% certain it will run
freebsd but I don't see why not. I like that it has three gigabit
ports with console access, too.

2. I have freebsd 10.1-RC4 running on a Beagle Bone black with thttpd
compiled from ports. I used to get bummed that packages are old for
the ARM platform, but having ports available is very nice and gets me
through installing some apps. I know tarsnap won't install on the BBB,
could be something I can look into, though.

Let us know what you decide!
