are you building your chatroom and forum yourself? Simply leave out the whole registration process. 

using 3rd party scripts? Most forum softwares allow you to alter the permissions of usergroups. You could simply alter it to give the "guest" or "unregistered user" or whatever permissions to post, etc...

and that's about all the help I can give without more info. 

p.s. - if it's 3rd party software, I suggest going to their website and asking them.

yeah they are third party scripts i wanted to know could i put them all in the same database so that they user information could stay the same over the entire site.

thats not so easy, you would have to edit all the scripts to use the same session variables and the same users database.
