So, you want to do something like CentOS was to Redhat?  That should be pretty 
doable. Probably got to find all the logo locations, and just script a way to 
remove them.  Might have to do some sed work to to remove reference to pfSense 
that aren't in the licenses.

That said, take a look at this. Maybe it's what you're looking for:
