You would need to develop this type of web site using a language such as PHP, ASP, Java. Your best bet is PHP imho.
As to how easy it would be depends on how fast you can pick up the programming skills.

Yes, you can probably find scripts, but there is no way they are going to work the way you want to unless you learn the language they are programmed in. If you are unable to hire someone to write the code for you, then the only suggestion I have is to learn PHP and then focus on what modules you can find already made and incorporate it into your site.
PHP is fairly easy to use and almost all web hosting companies support it.

There is no source where you can go and tick some check boxes and get a ready made website that perfectly accommodates your needs. You can use something like Joomla or Drupal to do the heavy work for you, but you are still going to have to take time to learn those platforms. And then you are still going to have to manually tweak things so they all work like you want.
What you are trying to do is basically create a forum, and that takes many many many months of development and bug testing. You could look into free forum software (just do a search). I think that would get you most of the way.

My suggestion is to pick up a book or check a local college out for one of those short classes on the subject. I've taken a few of these ed2go ones that my local college is registered with on Visual Basic and other languages to get me started. For around $100 you'll get a few online lessons for 6 weeks and a certificate of completion. I have a few more I'm planing to take including php.

Like has already been said, you won't be able to just copy/paste the code into a page and *poof* it works. Unless it is completely self-contained, you'll have to do a lot of tweaking and customizing to make it work the way you want to.
What I would recommend is learning the language, and writing the site yourself. There's a great sense of satisfaction and accomplishment knowing you did it yourself
Edit: Unless you plan on doing a forum-style website. Use an open-source like phpBB or MyBB and build around it. A forum is a big project to code by yourself at any level, especially as a beginner.
Aside from that, once you write a script yourself, you know how it works and you are free to transpose it to another page without starting from scratch. I have several pre-structured PHP scripts saved so all I have to do is paste the structure and edit the details.
