In Ubuntu (karmic), I can issue top and then press 'Z' or 'B' to color-code or enable bold.

Is there any way (hack or otherwise) to do this in FreeBSD (7.2)?

I'm pretty sure that the stock FreeBSD top command does not support color. You may want to check out the sysutils/htop port, as it does support color and you can customize it (somewhat).
