    You could use a free service like http://www.freeforums.org/ that will host your forum on their host, use a free or a premium script like vBulletin, PHPbb, SMF, or any other forum scripts (there are lots, just try a Google search). To use a script you will need a domain name with a hosting package and some basic knowledge about how to install a script (commonly is extremly easy to follow installation steps provided by the respective script).

    You'll need to know some HTML, PHP, CSS ( and maybe some JavaScript ) . You also need to know how to work with MySQL database, how to store data in tables and how to get it out.

    You can build a forum in any language capable of running on a web server - PHP, C#, Java, Ruby, and many more. By far the most popular language for web forums is currently PHP, there are also a few boards also written in .Net.
