    Your child theme needs to call your normal WordPress theme as its parent. It will then use your normal theme and add your child theme customisations on top.

    If you have followed the instructions there, especially Step 5 (including the bit where it tells you to follow the ones here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes) then activating the theme should still use your normal theme as well.

    My wordpress page has a few php page templates, the bbpress is using the default one, where would i change it to one of the others?

    Pick the template you want to use and make a copy of it called bbpress.php (in your child theme folder) and bbPress will figure out the rest.
