Simple question I guess ;D
Is it possible to install apache on the same machine as Pfsense, and with it Perl too? for a couple very basic websites.

Yes (pkg_add), but I would never, ever do so. Websites are so commonly hacked, you don't want your firewall getting owned in the process.
It would only be an internal website, and the firewall is only used for the captive portal really!
Pfsense obviously serves a few pages, and you can add a limited amount of PHP files. Can you actually use PHP to write files directly with Pfsense though? If I could do that I may not need to install apache.
Having installed Squid & Lightsquid, I can see that light squid uses some Perl PL/CGI scripts and serves pages. like 192.168.1.1/lightsquid/index.cgi
How does this serve these web pages? I know I can add web pages to the captive-portal area, but is there someway for me to add some custom pages like lightsquid does? I cannot see anywhere in the fils system how to do this (using the file browser package).
Ah, ok, seems I can add things here: /usr/local/www/
