Your question sounds interesting 'without IPFW or with IPF'.. :) Should it read 'using IPF instead of IPFW'? :) 

You can probably do redirection based on the source IP address with IPF as well. Something like
this might work:

pass out proto tcp from your_source to your dest head 10
rdr <int> port any -> your_redir_target port 12345 group 10

or something... (althrough source-address based policy routing is not what IPF
nor IPFW are supposed to do, you will probably want to have a look into routing
daemons or something)

Oh, and by the way, it is kinda off-topic here :)
