I think you should take a look at http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/l10n.html first.
Besides there is a separate directory in the ports tree for chinese, /usr/ports/chinese.
If you are a KDE user, then these might help

Firstly you need an x-imput method, fcitx maybe a good choice.
Secondly you need correctly config it according the way you start your X, if you use "startx" command, set the "locale env-variable" in your .xinirc or .shell-rc file(I never use it), if you use x-display manager you need know what the xdm you use and how it config the "loclae env-variable", I use gdm so I set it in my .profile, but I dont't know how config it for kdm.
Pay attention that different xdm have different way to treat the "locale env-variable", this configuration is for gdm.
As a suggestion, use utf-8.
LC_CTYPE=zh_CN.UTF-8; export LC_CTYPE
XMODIFIERS=@im=fcitx; export XMODIFIERS
