cd /usr/ports/www/apache13  # or apache13-modssl, or apache2, etc.
make install

That's it.  You may want to update your ports tree prior to installing
anything, but it's not strictly required.  The more you learn about the
ports system, the smoother your FreeBSD experience will be.  There is a
nice section in the FreeBSD handbook about installing software from
ports, it's a good idea to read that.  Once installed, Apache is
Apache.  The configuration directives are the same regardless of the
underlying OS/distro.  Files may be located in different places though.
