Wordpress Theme Work

The specifics of the project are that we're using Wordpress as more of a CMS for a community of writers than as a straight-up blog. We're also working off of the BuddyPress
There are two specific features that I'm looking to incorporate in to the site:
- A simplified posting screen,
- and a good way to promote posts to the front page.
Are there any existing plug-ins that accomplish these tasks and would also be compatible with BuddyPress? If not, then what would be a good starting point to work on these goals?
A few of the BuddyPress optimized themes get sort
of close to what I'm looking for in terms of design, but they're also all freemium models, and I'm not sure about the wisdom of using a shareware theme for the site. How easy is it to modify an existing theme, and does this cause further problems when a new version of Word/Buddy press is released?
Both Wordpress and BuddyPress are set in stone in terms of the project, so not using them isn't really an option.
