It is not too clear what you want. Do you wish to change the font, screen lines etc through a Putty console; or on a console displaying on the BSD machine. In the latter case use vidcontrol -- see the man page. To get much flexibility you'll need to load the vesa.ko kernel module. As for scrolling; this is turned on and off by the scroll-lock key.
