Expand the Forum menu to reveal the Create Forum options

Read the assistant module where it talks about clicking :: or the folder icon next to menu options.

Email acknowledgement wont work on localhost setups until you also install and configure a suitable mailserver or configure your PHP to use SMTP server of your ISP.
