I am an experienced web developer but new to Microsoft Web Platform/Matrix. I just want to create my own website with a phpBB forum.
Can someone tell me what I should download to create the necessary development environment?

Well one of the easiest ways would be just to add phpbb from the Web Platform Installer and it will tell you what you are missing on the system and offer to install the other bits for you.
But you are going to need PHP & a database MySQL or MS SQL, WebMatrix comes with the IISExpress web server so no need to install any thing else.
I am not sure what addin's of php phpbb needs so you may need to look into that but here would be a good start for that
