Hi Npumcrisz !
I'm a newbie like you but I can help ... :-)

*I don't know how to get access to the port/package collection!
the OpenBSD Team encourage the use of packages rather than ports
IMPORTANT NOTE: The ports tree is meant for advanced users. Everyone is encouraged to use the pre-compiled binary packages
choose the closest mirror from ftplist .. here
if you are in n Germany for instance , do this :
  $ export PKG_PATH='machine -a'/
then .. to install bash , for example ..
$ sudo pkg_add bash
you can make the PKG_PATH permanent by putting it in your ~/.profile
