Issues on Sony PCG-C1VN

Hello,

A bit of introduction: as most FreeBSD beginner users (I suppose), I come from Linux.
I want to run FreeBSD on a Sony PCG-C1VN laptop as stated in the thread name, and it is pretty ancient. This is a side project for myself, I want a fun old painful to use portable terminal running modern secure Unix-like OS.
Because of it's age, I failed at getting Xorg working on Linux (Gentoo), because mach64 driver has been deprecated there for years, if not decades, and I didn't find a way to glue it on (not even all the sources are available now).
However, FreeBSD shows some possibility to actually use it, so I am giving it a try. But I have several issues:

1) My USB port doesn't work, pciconf -l told me there was no driver attached to:
And several others, but I do not think they are relevant (sound, dialup modem, etc.) But it says it attached Intel 82371AB/EB/MB PIIX4 USB controller to uhci driver, which seems correct, but I do not get usb flash drive or Apple USB to Ethernet adapter (supported by axge driver) to display in usbconfig. But in dmesg.boot there are lines
usbus0 on uhci0
pci0: <bridge> at device 7.3 (no driver attached)

I suppose this may be why I do not get usb devices to work, as it looks like USB bridge to me (Intel 82371AB/EB/MB PIIX4 ACPI) https://pci-ids.ucw.cz/read/PC/8086/7113
2) It won't poweroff or reboot, no matter if I poweroff or init 0, it does it's thing, gives some output, CPU fan turns off, some time passes with nothing on screen changing, then it writes uhci_interrupt: resume detect, CPU fan starts again and system hangs. The next boot (or multiple tries) hang on SDRAM controller initialisation, but several reboots from bootloader seem to allow booting again
3) I am trying to compile a custom kernel on a separate machine (qemu VM) hoping to integrate mach64 driver, solve some of the issues and get a bit lighter OS (128MB of ram -16MB for CPU compatibility layer -24MB for GPU = not much), but I keep getting errors like
/usr/src/sys/dev/e1000/if_em.h:91:10: fatal error: 'ifdi_if.h' file not found,
and if I disable ifdi NICs since I can sacrifice them,
/usr/src/sys/dev/agp/agppriv.h:49:10: fatal error: 'agp_if.h' file not found
I compile with make -j6 buildkernel KERNCONF=SONYPCG, running in single thread does not change anything (not that it should, but who knows).
