Tricky setup you have got there. I would suggest to slow down, and make things work one by one, not all together at the same time.

Double check, if you are plugging right stuff in the right jacks.

Now my cable modem can't obtain ip address from Comcast.
Is your modem configured as router, or as a bridge? If it's a router, ask the question to Comcast support, whatever is it's issue, it should have nothing to do with Xen or your Pfsense. If it's a bridge, consider to make it work in router mode first with your pfsense VM.

Should I setup the xenbr1 bridge to dhcp ?
Generally, "42" would be the answer.
Describe your network topology before asking that.

Do I need to configure virtual network card to have same mac address
that my network card
Generally, no. Leave each MAC address on the place it belongs, unless specifically need to change that and know exactly why.

If the modem is acting as bridge and your ISP expects to know your computer's MAC address, consider asking them to register your VM "external" MAC. Tell them you are going to use your own router, and this is the MAC address of it's WAN interface.
