Do not allow users to create topics in this forum.

But allow answer in the created topics.

You shoud user Forum Access - Usergroup permission system for certain Forum.

Doc: https://wpforo.com/docs/root/wpforo-settings/forum-accesses/

Step 1 - Create a Reply Only forum access:

Step 2 - Set Reply Only forum access for Registered Usergroup for forums you want (edit forum):

 

In case the Reply Only access should be set for all forums

You can edit the Standard Access in Dashboard > Settings > Forum Access admin page and uncheck/disable the  "Can create topic" permission instead of doing the steps above.
