What you are talking about is a proxy server and there are several packages for FREESCO. Probably the most powerful is squid which is a caching proxy server, but it is also very complex to custom configure. Then there is privoxy which is not a caching proxy server, but much easier to configure and lastly Junkbuster which is what privoxy was started from and is also much easier to configure.
You can then force all or some clients to have to use the proxy server by using the local ban option. Which prevents access to the Internet unless they go through the proxy.
As a secondary option which is VERY effective is to use the built in static DNS entries so that you can list any URL and give it an IP of 0.0.0.0 which makes those sites un availible to the local network. You can also put them in the external ban list as well.
If you are afraid that you might make a mistake. The chances are high that you will never learn anything.

Is there anyway to filter content by keywords or types of sites without having to specify specific sites to block.

And adblock

squid.cfg
1)
acl adservers dstdom_regex -i "(path to adblock file)"

2)
http_access deny adservers

3)
deny_info (path to)ad.gif adservers


ad.gif = white smal gif file (1x1)

update the adblock file from <a href='http://pgl.yoyo.org/adservers/serverlist.php?hostformat=squid-dstdom-regex&showintro=0&startdate%5Bday%5D=&startdate%5Bmonth%5D=&startdate%5Byear%5D=' target='_blank'>her</a> whit script 1 time/week

If you are interested in a filtering service that will work with your freesco router, you can check out our service. There is a free trial available so you can see if it meets your needs. <a href='http://www.xobe.com' target='_blank'>Xobe Content Filter</a>

Lightning mentioned a DNS solution that you can manage yourself on your router. Our service is also DNS based, but we manage the lists / categories, and give you a GUI with lots of nice features.

Hope this helps!
