RE:Question About Forums Module
regarding to your questions:
1) you can enable the user avatars in Forum Group web part configuration by setting the box "Enable images" to true. It will show the user images.
2) It is possible only by the page layout - you can add an image to forum modifying the page layout or you can also modify the CSS styles at <web project>\app_themes\<stylesheet name>\Forums.css
3-4) This features should be added in some of the next versions. We are still considering them and looking for some good solution.
5)You can modify the file in CMSForum folder - ForumNewPost.aspx but you also need to ensure the validity of the removed fields - e.g. by adding an empty value in code behind.
6) I am not sure what you mean with hot topics, but if you want to display most commented post or someting similar, you can for example try to create a transformation for repeater with custom query and obtain from DB the posts you want to.
