I've never personally made a keymap ... err, however, looking at
hil_keymaps.c, there certainly appears to be a Swedish keymap. Here's
the CVS log:

Keymap for the Swedish HIL keyboard, from Tomas Tengling
But, it looks like it's not in the keymap table by default. That's a
goof on my part.. They probably ought to be enabled by default in the
options SE_KEYBOARD # Swedish HIL keyboard map
to your kernel config file, and rebuild your kernel (specifically, you'll
need to remove hil_keymaps.o, if you want to avoid a "make clean").

Define "try to use my terminal" ... as the conole, or just as an
auxillary tty? There is a known bug in the port which causes ill
behavior (often a spurious interrupt panic) if XON/XOFF flow control is
enabled on the terminal. I know what I have to do to take care of that
problem, but unfortunately, fixing that bug will break the HIL (don't ask..)
Once I figure out how to deal with both at once, I'll fix that...
