With which part of the requirement you are facing difficulties and what have you tried so far?

If the sole reason to request a dummy code for entering freight is to print a separate line item in the invoice and if you can achieve with a single item postings that FI/CO accept as correct, it may be better just to change the printform...

Separate line items introduce additional challenges in normal business operation, because you have to keep them together with the product to which they are related and in case of partial deliveries and big volume of documents this leads to a lot of mistakes and corrections.

Make a test case in DEV/QA to demonstrate how this will work and request the business to replicate the documents and processing for a single day. There is a high chance that after they encounter some of the problems related to separate order items for freight that they will change their mind.

Your post is incomplete. How currently your pricing procedure is configured? Don't you have a separate condition type for freight? If you have, you can very well show as a separate line item in billing. Also, I presume, your requirement is more of FI postings related than SD in which case, that can also be addressed by having a different Account Key and G/L Account assignments.
