I think your best bet would be to create an HTML page and set it up how you want it, making that the default webpage upon visiting your forum.

Admin CP > Modules > HTML Page Management
Create new HTML page
Use this page as your homepage? : Yes


Note that you'll have to either use the forum's header and footer, or completely write the page yourself in HTML.

The instructions I gave should suit you. Unless you're asking me to write the code FOR you.

I understand that but how do you make the buttons that actually let you into the site, what would i have to put in to make it where i can have an 'accept' or 'decline' button and have it where if you click accept it takes you to main website and if decline then to google or something.

You can do that pretty easily.

Code:
<button onclick="location.href='YOUR URL HERE'">
    Accept</button>

<button onclick="location.href='http://www.google.com'">
    Decline</button>

Yeah, essentially. You'd have to have the link be something like...
http://help.forumotion.com/forum

But note that if people know the /forum or /portal links or anyhting, they can completely avoid your TOS page here. Should probably make some note on the ToS that details that.

If you right click on the link you gave to the "Fallen Empire" example Terms of Service, then click on "view page source", you will see how it was made and you can alter it to suit your own needs.

Okay, one more thing, after i have made the tos is there any way to make it where you only have to agree once not every time you visit the site?
