Is there something that I'm missing, such that if I add a keyboard

Basically, I have several remote servers, with no keyboards, but if

You should be able to add a USB keyboard and have it be recognized,
at least by the newer versions of FreeBSD.
If you're talking about a PS/2 keyboard, probably not...the BIOS
recognizes and configures them at boot time, and if one isn't present
then, the resources aren't allocated for one to be added later. You
should also be aware that PS/2 isn't a "hot plug" interface-- some
people have blown fuses on their motherboards by hot-plugging a PS/2
keyboard while the system is running. Someone's suggestion about
using a KVM is a good thought, however...
