It's real easy to set up a forum. First thing I would do is become a Premier member. If you already are, then just go and create a forum. Create a few groups and give them each different permissions for that forum. Just remember, you cannot give groups lower permissions than regular users.
A good way to set it up is like this:
Anyone: no access
Network54 logins: Read only
Normal group: post or post moderated
What this will do is make the forum invisible to the internet, except for Network54 users who can only post if they are in your normal group (you'll have to come up with a name for each group). If you make it post moderated, their posts will only show up on the forum after a moderator, or you, approve them. Moderators will have the ability to approve postts, as well as edit and/or delete them, as will you as forum owner. Only you will have the ability to allow new members, ban people, etc... NEVER give out your login info to ANYONE for ANY reason.
Good luck and be sure to ask for any help you may need.
