Looking to insert Load "freetype" module into /etc/X11/xorg.conf but it don't exist?
Which files hold the modules?

It's no longer required and the module got removed from Xorg some time ago.

Nvidia cards need nvidia-xconfig which creates an xorg.conf.
Not really. It too doesn't require an xorg.conf, you only need to create a /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/driver-nvidia.conf to load the driver, that's all. In exactly the same way as the handbook shows for the intel(4) driver.

Funny, I don't have a /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/driver-nvidia.conf, only an /etc/X11/xorg.conf created by nvidia-xconfig. Maybe it doesn't matter where you put it. But here my X11 doesn't start without a config file for the Nvidia.

/etc/X11/xorg.conf is "deprecated" because currently (most users) you do not need a complete Xorg configuration file anymore, but just a few specific tweaks.

For that (specific tweaks) /usr/local/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/* are used. It can a single file but the practice is to separate the files per section.
