My company has an Intranet SharePoint site with a NewsGator plugin which allows users to post questions and answers to a particular community.  
I am developing an Intranet ASP Web page for the company, which is intended to be a one stop portal to many different self help resources.  One of the requirements is to have a section in the web page where the user can type in a question and post it to the same community I just mentioned.
 I have a lot of experience developing ASP.NET/C# web apps, but no experience developing SharePoint or NewsGator. Can someone please advise on a high level approach to designing a solution.

Per NewsGator brochure "Use APIs for publishing activities and retrieving activity stream data and details on users". http://www.newsgator.com/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=UqXsB52BAss%3D&tabid=98

So you need to explore their API http://developer.newsgator.com/wiki/index.php?title=API_Main_Page to add items to the newsgator component

For general SP page, you have not mentioned if you are using 2007 or 2010. But general links are below:
