You simply need to set as the Linux box's default gateway and
set up the appropriate DNS servers in resolv.conf

You'll need to set up port forwarding.  See the man page for natd and
pay close attention to the redirect_port diretive.  If you're going to
have many set up (as it seems you will) it's usually easier to put them
in a config file and tell natd to read it's config from that file.

Port forwarding again.  But you'll have to use a non-standard port or
you'll hit a conflict between sshd on the FreeBSD box and trying to
forward sshd to the Linux box.  Something like
redirect_port tcp 2222

Then if you ssh with defaults to the gateway, you'll log in to the gateway,
and if you ssh to port 2222, you'll ssh to the Linux box.

On the FreeBSD box, to forward all traffic on port 80 to the linux box:
redirect_port tcp 80

The other ports follow the same pattern.
