 Please help with ports.

This is my second day of using freebsd, I have read the ports section of the FreeBSD handbool, but I still have many questions about ports.

How do I update all packages?
Is there a GUI for ports (like synaptic for debian and kportage for gentoo)?
How do I install older versions of packages (like kde2.2.20)?
How do I search for package by its description?
How do I make ports install all missing dependencies? (after pkg_add fails to)
How do I remove a package with all it's dependencies?
How do I remove a package and packages that depend on it?

Thank you in advance for all your help,

Roman Gaufman
