It looks like FreeBSD doesn't even support this device yet, so it will probably be a while before we do.

Could be used a binary blob like this one (https://github.com/samcv/A485-RTL8822BE-firmware) to enable wifi from this wifi card?

The binary blob is necessary but insufficient. The kernel driver needs to know about and support the hardware, too. FreeBSD's driver does not yet do this.
