I'm new to FreeBSD but I have experience with Linux distributions. I'm very happy with FreeBSD so far. I used the guided encryption zfs option also I have raidz with 4xHDD.

The encryption key is on boot pool at /boot/encryption.key, right? I also have encrypt every HDD with geli use new key and passphrase and then create raidz with zfs.

If my system ssd don't work can I use the encryption.key + passphrase to get into raidz and my system pools on a different machine?

How I can save my whole system ssd with zfs into the raidz?

You can use zfs send to create a backup of it. You can store that anywhere you like. You can zfs receive it on a different pool, or send the whole thing to a single file.
