A beginner requesting help to install chatbox

Hello, I am an adminstrator on http://talesofamn.myfreeforum.org/index.php , where I've tasked myself with managing the forum, and people have asked me to add a chatbox at the bottom of the forum.  I'm an all out beginner when it comes to html I've barely touched it. I did some searching for the keywords chatbox and shout box, but I didn't find what I was looking for. I did fine some instructions, but given my low knowledge level with this I didn't find sufficient instructions for my level.

We are using the subsilver2 or prosilver forum style, edited to add forum banner, hence the reason I don't know which, added with my low level of skill in this area, and the one editing it not remembering which one it was.

I intend to use shoutbox sourceforge as the forums shoutbox. I got the code I need, I think:

Code:
a:link{
   color : #FF9900;
   text-decoration : none;
}

a:visited{
   color : #FF6600;
   text-decoration : none;
}

a:hover{
   color : #FF9900;
   text-decoration : underline;
}

a:active{
   color : #FFCC66;
   text-decoration : none;
}



body{
   background-color : #42518C;
   font-family : Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
   font-size : xx-small;
   scrollbar-3dlight-color : #7A89C1;
   scrollbar-arrow-color : #FF9900;
   scrollbar-base-color : #2B3869;
   scrollbar-darkshadow-color : #000000;
   scrollbar-face-color : #2B3869;
   scrollbar-highlight-color : #2B3869;
   scrollbar-shadow-color : #2B3869;
   scrollbar-track-color : #2B3869;
}

.button {
   background : #405088;
   border : 1 solid #000000;
   color : #FFFFFF;
   font-family : Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
   font-size : 9px;
   font-weight : bold;
}

.editbox {
   background : #000033;
   border : 1 solid #405088;
   color : #FFFFFF;
   font-family : Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
   font-size : 10px;
}

.formarea {
   background-color : #42518C;
   border-bottom-color : #38477C;
   border-bottom-style : solid;
   border-bottom-width : 1;
   border-left-color : #596BB1;
   border-left-style : solid;
   border-left-width : 1px;
   border-right-color : #38477C;
   border-right-style : solid;
   border-right-width : 1px;
   border-top-color : #596BB1;
   border-top-style : solid;
   border-top-width : 1px;
   color : #FFFFFF;
   font-size : 10px;
}

.shoutbox {
   color : #FFFFFF;
   font-family : Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
   font-size : xx-small;
   text-align : left;
}

a.inlinelink:link {

}

a.inlinelink:visited {
   color : #FFFFFF;
   text-decoration : none;
}

a.inlinelink:active {
   color : #FFFFFF;
   text-decoration : none;
}

a.inlinelink:hover {
   color : #FFFFFF;
   text-decoration : underline;
}

.table0 {
   background-color : #42518C;
   border-bottom-color : #38477C;
   border-bottom-style : solid;
   border-bottom-width : 1;
   border-left-color : #596BB1;
   border-left-style : solid;
   border-left-width : 1px;
   border-right-color : #38477C;
   border-right-style : solid;
   border-right-width : 1px;
   border-top-color : #596BB1;
   border-top-style : solid;
   border-top-width : 1px;
   color : #FFFFFF;
   font-size : xx-small;
}

.table1 {
   background-color : #3C4B81;
   border-bottom-color : #38477C;
   border-bottom-style : solid;
   border-bottom-width : 1;
   border-left-color : #596BB1;
   border-left-style : solid;
   border-left-width : 1px;
   border-right-color : #38477C;
   border-right-style : solid;
   border-right-width : 1px;
   border-top-color : #596BB1;
   border-top-style : solid;
   border-top-width : 1px;
   color : #FFFFFF;
   font-size : xx-small;
}


The way I understood some of the things I found here is that I have to: Edit template --> select from list overall_header or overall_footer. I tried both, as some people on this forum suggested, by putting the code at the end of the header/footer,  sadly I did not get it to work, hence my confusion, and why I'm wondering what I missed, or rather what I did wrong.  

Thank you,
Morten

The only code you have shown there, is styling code that would control how a shoutbox looks.
I see nothing that would actually put the actual  shoutbox on the page.
