Default Two questions about GARS.

The layout is a little confusing, please forgive my noobiness.
First off, I need to know where to get the system at all.
Second of all, I was wondering if it really fits my needs. This is pretty much what I need:

I need the front page to be a listing of the articles, kind of like the news archive. And I need those listings to link to something kind of like the news module. But here's the issue.
I need the articles to be somewhere off the forum. They readers need to be able to read the full article, and perhaps be linked to a commentary thread added later, but having them on the forum seems kind of inelegant.

I managed this pretty well with a wordpress installation, but I was forced to give that up when I payed for a custom style because I couldn't skin the wordpress to match the forum and I couldn't pay enough to get the wp skinned. So I went with vBA. A similar setup to what I'm talking about can be seen here, albeit without the articles being minimized on the front page.

Ragtek on vB.org recommended you guys to me. So am I at the right place?

GARS lets you format your forums in a number of different ways. GARS is not separate from forums, but rather changes your forums to be things like articles or reviews. You would set up the forums you want and then you would apply GARS to only those forums that you want to change.
