By programming it.

But seriously, the basic FB functionality is not hard if you understand web development and databases. Of course, FB has a lots of AJAX-y bells and whistles, but you can leave those out for a start.

FB is of course much too complex to describe in a forum post like this; maybe you can ask a more specific question.

It should be possible. As Tim pointed out, you have to spend time programming it.

May be you can start with learn the API - They should be mostly REST based API which you can implement in your Java based web application.

As there are lot of things you can do with Facebook API- You are trying to authenticate user based on Facebook credentials? or are you trying to create commenting system and lot other things which come with it for your application? Or are you trying to do other things? In any case for you to use Facebook features in your web applications you would have to create a Facebook Application.
