I don't know the answer to your question. Don't know if anyone here knows the answer. So, if you get no replies that will be your answer.

When I am modifying the css for a wordpress template(running on a linux vm or linux box with LAMP stack) I use Opera browser and right-click on the div in question and "inspect element" this will highlight the elements shown in the code in Opera Dragonfly which opens and displays the source code in it's separate window in the bottom of the browser, the corresponding css shows to the right side of the html pane and I can find the id or class of the element i want to change along with the line number in the css file. In Dragonfly, I can change css attributes for a preview, and when it looks like I want it to I switch to Bluefish editor and make the final, permanent edit to the css, save the css file and reload the page in Opera to be sure I made the correct changes. A bit of trial and error now and then, and after a while I have my fully customized version of the template's css, I will also do some work on the php files to get all my changes made to the content of the pages.
I haven't worked on a BB press template, but you can probably use the same techniques for customization of the look of a forum.

Hope this helps you in starting to customize your site.

Just sounds like someone is so impressed with the layout of the HTG site that they want to have a similar layout.

I've seen a number of instances of commercial web designers are using WordPress to create websites now, mainly due to the number of plugins available and the way that it can be adapted I guess. OpenSource rules again.....
