When I read your subject line, I thought you were simply looking for Wikis
functioning as forums, which is something I worked on in the past (
http://www.schestowitz.com/Software/Correspondence_Wiki/ )

Having read your message body, I suggest you look into the later versions of
GPL PHP-Nuke ( http://phpnuke.org ). Registered users/guests can add
comments in a threaded fashion, can submit news (i.e. publish as registered
visitors; moderation required from superusers) and phpBB is built-in so
they can use the same account for personal messages and the forum. All
policies and privileges are quite flexible and I am sure you can customise
it to suit your needs.
