That could be a nice add on. I don't think anyone as made this yet.

There is a new new forum extension but I haven't tried it out yet.

This sounds ambitious with Radiant

From my experience with radiant I think a few of these features seem
like you will be doing some development work to achieve. That said
the CMS is quite flexible and I'm sure it could be made to do these
things. I can't believe I'm saying this but with what your trying to
do may I suggest you first look into Drupal before you start this
project with Radiant. I don't know Drupal very well but I do know
some sites made with it that have similar features. Good luck with
what ever you choose.
