Similar, not the same, but yes, documentation for one app under Linux will 
help you for the same app under FreeBSD. Read the documentation for the 
software, check FreeBSD documentation/tutorials/FAQ at 
http://www.freebsd.org, and check the Linux HOWTO's for transferrable tips.

For additional software, grab the appropriate packages from the FreeBSD 
ports collection -- http://www.freebsd.org/ports/ and use pkg_add(1)

Some post-install system config can be done from /stand/sysinstall

A good overview for securing FreeBSD may be found at:

Hope this helps a little.
