How the amount of sessions is setup?
Is it same as sysctl -w kern.ipc.somaxconn=32768 ?

Is it possible to adjust this amount of sessions in m0n0wall by using 
some system parameters?

I use now

sysctl -w kern.ipc.somaxconn=32768

and set kern.ipc.nmbclusters=32768

By using these, specially somaxconn it seems to help, as m0n0wall can 
now have many concurrent connections?

I like more m0n0wall specially the dymmynet queue system.

I have no need to switch  pfsense as m0n0wall suits my needs, just need 
some tweak up parameters, nothing else.
