I am new here so please be patient with me... I just want to know how one would start a chat room? Or if one even can? Are they only created by Moderators/senior members?

Just want to know so I am not the silly newbie...

    I've never done it, but at the bottom of the chat page, there is this link: chat.stackexchange.com/rooms/new. Does that let you do it? – Molag Bal May 12 '16 at 5:38

At the bottom of the list of all SFF chatrooms, there's a button for setting up a new room:

enter image description here

That link goes to this page, where you can create a room with whatever room title you like, associated to whatever SE site you like. (I think you can even set up a room associated to a site where you don't have an account.)

Once you've got enough rep - at least 1000 network-wide - you can also create a gallery chatroom, in which only users you grant permission (plus moderators) are able to post, although the room and its transcript are still publicly visible.
