Is it possible to use fwd rule instead of divert ??

For example

00100 fwd 127.0.0.1 8668 ip from any to any

instead of

00100 divert 8668 ip from any to any


No. NATd was made to be used with divert sockets. Divert are made to work directly with FreeBSD's packet filter (and ipfw(8)), and can stop data from propagating throught the IP stack, they can be used to modify/inject packets etc. Forwarding simply passes a copy of the packet to an IP/Port, at which point it's life pretty much ends.
