    vbulletin

    That's a vBulletin forum (like this one). According to the site, it's "fully customizable". I have phpBB, but I imagine vBulletin is similar in using templates and modifications to customize it. http://www.vbulletin.com/

    vbulletin with ads

    I don't know about vBulletin. I imagine there might be modifications in the site's forum explaining how. If not you could probably hard code into the template file(s).
    It most likely has something like "page_footer.tpl" with mark-up that other pages use. If you put in the ad's mark-up into it, it would show on all the pages that use it.

    styling forum - ads

    Getting the style "exactly" like another site may be a bit of work, but you should be able to find a template that you like. http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/catdb.php?db=2 For putting ads into the forum, I searched the phpBB MOD database, and found these 2 http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic...ght=banner+ads http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic...ght=banner+ads
