Can I use FreeBSD ports with pfSense

Yes, it is possible, although care should be taken when considering what to install on a firewall.

Ports cannot be built from source directly on the firewall because pfSense does not have a compiler or related tools/includes, but pkg_add/pkg add may be used to add binary packages.

See Installing FreeBSD Packages for more information.
