This is an open question concerning the "good" way to manage python "modules". 
As you probably know python proposes various builtin "module" managers (such as pip). 

A first question : is it equivalent to use port to manage "python + module" and port to manage "python" and pip to manage "module" ? 
Since now I tough that the first solution was the best since module compilation is adapted to macos. Am I right ? Any comment ? 

A second question : python3 proposes builtin virtual environments management (venv) which is deeply related to pip. 
In case of using port to manage "python + module" how to do it ? 

I hope I am clear and thanks in advance for your answers.
