more detailed information is required.

Does the chain skip on the front, or does the chain skip on the rear, or does the freewheel rotate without driving the rear wheel?

The answer depends on where the skipping is occurring.

Overhauling a freewheel is a hassle. Freewheels are sub-20-USD, I would just replace it...
