A laudable ambition!

OK, honestly, am I working under a valid assumption that it *is*
possible to print from FreeBSD? Or is this just going to engender
greater frustration?

Unfortunately the frustration level tends to be inversely proportional to the brain power of the printer. Things are relatively easy if you have a printer which directly accepts PostScript. Unfortunately, this is not the case with an HP OfficeJet 4110, hence all the extra bits and fiddling.

But you can actually print from FreeBSD. I've seen it with my very own eyes. :-)
