MacOS X comes with good old ipfw. Apple has added a 2nd firewall on top of that for 10.5, but apparently not pf.
Another question: can I install X11 without it bothering whatever kind of mac front-end windowing comes with? Be great if I could admin this BSD-based computer from my office.
Yes, Apple provides X11 as an optional install on the included system DVD, but not preloaded from the factory.
While you are loading X11 I suggest you also install Xcode. Then again I think Xcode was pre-installed on my Mac Pro. Xcode is Apple's software development environment.
