I have a database of users that contains emails and passwords (no "username" or "screen name"). Is there some graceful way to allow my users access to JForum by logging in using email/password, but let them still use the screen name set up in JForum?

A possible way would be to write your own implimentation of the LoginAuthenticator interface that would validate against your e-mail/password DB.
The one tricky part would be having this do a check against the Jforum user DB to see if an entry exists for the user. If it doesn't, you'd need send the user to a modified registration form where they could set up a unique "screen name (Jforum UserId) and other personal info.
