If parking a domain you do no need hosting just a domain name.

48 hours to park a domain yeah your old subdomain will work fine before you change the url over.

Does this mean that I don't need to activate maintenance mode during the 48 hour period?

You don't have to. You can change to the new domain when it is working.

You will know if the domain works if you visit the domain name that it goes to your forum.

I would also like to ask how can I make the new domain name to link to the board index, ie
http://kolathechemist.createaforum.com/index.php?action=forum,
instead of the homepage
http://kolathechemist.createaforum.com
the homepage is kinda empty, and i wish i could scrap it off so the board index is both board index & home,
OR,
Could you enlighten me on the importance of the homepage?

You can disable the ezportal homepage under ezportal settings uncheck that option.

Homepage is useful if you want a portal with news/articles as the first page.

Ok, then I'll leave the homepage. Now, I've been searching the admin CP For a way to write an article on the homepage, without success. Instead i'm given another ''homepage'' to write the article, obviously, users and guests will not be able to see it so i'm wondering how news & articles can appear in the homepage. HTML EZ block comes to mind, but I enabled it at the left for links.
