You won't have any trouble, except for the occasional minor difference
between FreeBSD & NetBSD. The hardest problem I face is the
difference in the default shell settings. :-)

Anything NetBSD supports works on hpcarm. That's what portability is

Standard NetBSD USB support, check the main NetBSD docs for Bluetooth.
I don't own any Bluetooth support (or any USB kit, actually), so never

Packages cannot be cross-compiled. I NFS mount /usr/pkgsrc and build
there, as the second article in that series you read says. Packages
