The port sysutils/apcupsd (as others have said) works flawlessly.
I have two APCs - similar to the one you consider: a BackUPS ES-500 and
an RS-500 (both USB)
They both work without problems with apcupsd both on FreeBSD and Linux.
The ES 750VA you consider is mostly equivalent to ES-500, simply more VA.
apcupsd is also very easy to configure.
