Have a look at the splash(4) manpage.

You shouldn't have to restart the system to change the screensaver.
If you want to change the daemon screensaver to the snake screensaver, run:
# kldunload daemon_saver
# kldload snake_saver
Then you can edit /etc/rc.conf after that so that snake_saver will load upon reboot.
