I have searched around (google) but have not found a list of similarities and differences between the two OS's. Can anybody help me?

FreeBSD has a different kernel, gentoo uses the linux kernel. The only reason why gentoo is associated with FreeBSD is of its package managing system called portage.

Btw. You might call FreeBSD an OS (because of the FreeBSD kernel) but gentoo is a distribution, which is based on the linux kernel.

Not at all, but maybe on hardware supports. At least, you just should try both and see which one you like the best.
