Hello, and welcome!

I don't have any answers to your specific questions; instead some general guidance.

The BSDs (Open, Net, Free, Dragonfly) are a family of historically-related operating systems, but otherwise are independent. Unlike Linux distributions, they do not share a common kernel distributed with selected tools and application suites. Each is an independent, complete OS with integrated kernel and userland, and a separate set of third party derived, ported application packages.

The FreeBSD-based Sony platform is therefore best approached using the FreeBSD OS.

While those four BSDs are independent, there are a number of "desktop friendly" distributions of FreeBSD. GhostBSD and TrueOS are the leaders in this space.
