For the moderation log, go into the admin console > general > role and check the setting for "Can see Moderation Activity Log". You want this to be no for non-admins.

A guest user is the "anonymous" user id. You can create a separate group for it if you like. And you could use the admin console to restrict access to all forums rendering search/hotest topics/etc useless.

I think we had to customize the header.htm file to customize member listing not showing up.

this is supposed to be a surprise, but it smells like a tiny ad:
