To add BSD to grub.conf you have two choices depending if you have an old or new grub
rootnoverify (hd0,1) chainloader +1 boot
title FreeBSD root (hd0,1,a) kernel /boot/loader boot

- FreeBSD uses UFS2 as the default filesystem.
- Yes you can add it to grub. Your entry would be similar to something like
title FreeBSD root (hd1,0,a) kernel /boot/loader

Yes, FreeBSD gives you an option to not install the bootloader, also, during the installation there is a partitioning program

PC-BSD is based on FreeBSD 6.x, so the code below should work as well,
title PC-BSD root (hd0,4,a) kernel /boot/loader
