Here's how to add your link. For styles, use phpbb.com or phpbbstyles.com.

#
#-----[ OPEN ]------------------------------------------------
#
includes/page_header.php
#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------------
#
$template->assign_vars(array(
#
#-----[ BEFORE, ADD ]-----------------------------------------
#
if ( !isset($nav_separator) )
{
$nav_separator = ' -> '; // alternate cuter choice :  » 
}
#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------------
#
'L_INDEX' => sprintf($lang['Forum_Index'], $board_config['sitename']),
#
#-----[ REPLACE WITH ]----------------------------------------
#
'L_LOGO' => sprintf($lang['Forum_Index'], $board_config['sitename']),
'L_INDEX' => trim(sprintf($lang['Forum_Index'], '')),
#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------------
#
'U_INDEX' => append_sid('index.'.$phpEx),
#
#-----[ REPLACE WITH ]----------------------------------------
#
'U_LOGO' => append_sid('index.'.$phpEx),
'U_INDEX' => './../" class="nav">' . $board_config['sitename'] . '</a>' . $nav_separator . '<a href="' . append_sid('index.'.$phpEx),
#
#-----[ OPEN ]------------------------------------------------
#
templates/subSilver/overall_header.tpl
#

LOL No worries, my friend. Of the files suggested, ftp into your forum and download them to an area on your pc you'll be able to find them. After that, navigate to where you've saved them and use the handy dandy right click to make copies of all of them (this is just in case you make mistakes while editing - you'll still have copies of the original files).

Once that's finished, follow the instructions I've just posted. For each file to be edited, right click on it and open with Notepad (hint: if the instructions say to find, for instance, LINE A, click edit in Notepad, go to Find and type or copy into the box what you're looking for and it will take you to that line).

Once you mess with it a little, you'll find it's kind of fun. If you don't think it's fun at all, use the personal email address (gmail) you have for me and I'll do it for you.
