My question is how hard or complex nd long does it take to learn how to make accounts for people? Nd how long will it take to learn the necessary code to make it? As well as making news feed, search and maybe a forum??

Creating accounts requires not only knowing PHP, but also database structure and coding, such as mySQL. Making a simple webapp with accounts for people is relatively easy, but when it comes to making sure your accounts are secured properly and creating complex queries and database structures for individual user information, feeds, and whatnot, it becomes quite a bit more complicated. There is a reason why websites like Facebook have different teams that specialize in various areas.
