Freedos is Free Software. Read the licence or in short read the wiki 

You have the right to do almost everything you want. In your case it's 
very much allowed to burn/install/copy wherever you want. So far about 
the legal part.

I recommend you to use CD-RW and a virtualizer for your tests. DOS on CD 
is no problem. But personally I prefer more to have bootable USB with 
DOS instant of CD because it's more easy to modify/update.

If you want it on CD first create a (virtual) bootable floppy image. 
Later burn it on CD using fdd emulation boot. Or use grub4dos or memdisk 
to emulate the bootable floppy. The most easy way for single boot would 
be to burn such a floppy image with nero.
