basically yes. Check if the installer allows you NOT to format
the partition where you have your home directories. If it is /usr/home
instead of /home (its own partition), problems may occur. Maybe you
delete everything from /usr EXCEPT the home/ subtree and then tell
the PC-BSD installer NOT to format the /usr partition. So your home
directories should be intact.
Keep copies of /etc/group,passwd et al. so you won't have to add
all the users (if you have more than one) manually.

Some people say that PC-BSD is the Ubuntu of the BSD's, or worse,
the "Windows" in the UNIX world. :-)

Should be no problem to forward X from the Ubuntu box to PC-BSD.
There's even a "Flash" plugin available as PBI.

Too sad such stuff mostly isn't provided in a standardized video
format (even streaming format)...
