The closest thing Facebook has to an account "freeze" option is the "deactivate" option. This option lets you temporarily disable your Facebook account, but easily return at a later date by simply signing in to reactivate. Once you reactivate, all of your friends, pictures, and previous wall posts will return to your account page.
