You've gotten the packages all taken care of, but ports are slightly different. The FreeBSD handbook is the best resource for this information:

Best of luck and welcome to the fold!

That's adding a binary package and not really ports. pkg_add is a wonderful thing and will work great for you if you don't need to customize your install.

Ports are great and let you tweak a lot of things and I would recomend that you check them out when you get a chance. The FreeBSD handbook at is great for all your doc needs.
