Default OpenBSD Newbie!

I have been struggling with FreeBSD for a few months and I have finally given up on the idea after facing so many stupid bugs.

I have installed OpenBSD on my older netbook today, and I am currently watching a video on YouTube which explains installing XFCE on OpenBSD 5.2 (and I had to assume that it would work on 5.3 too).

I have some questions in my mind.

1. In the video I watched, the poster downloaded ALL the packages using FTP. Is this the usual method, and would it still download all those packages if I run the FTP command at a later time?

2. How do I switch to -CURRENT, if it even exists?

3. Can you point me to a good how-to on upgrading the base system?

Thanks beforehand!
