There are already 80 google hits for your site so it's already being indexed perfectly well without the apparently essential SEO friendly links.

It's a new site with a new software installation. The indexing will have started from zero.

Here's couple of relevant experiment done by a famous SEO expert:

Most SEO experts working for Fortune500 companies agree that SEO friendly URLs do matter.
I really wish SEO friendly URL feature is integarted in the software.

neil patel is a internet marketer trying to sell you his programs.
however, I just read those experiments the other day myself.
he says in those articles that the differences made by the seo urls was noticable but very small.
his main conclusion was why not do them all because every little bit helps.

that is not saying that seo urls makes a big difference.

my question, do you know "most fortune 500" companies IT staff?
point is that even if what you say is true about them, they are probably like most so called "SEO experts" and are still working on old information about SEO and dynamic websites like phpbb etc.

changing your board over to the friendly type urls is not going to make enough difference in SEO to be worth the hassles of doing it and keeping it all up to date with each phpbb update.
also, if you ever decide to switch it back you will lose all that search ranking etc. and have to start over.

for the benefit you gain I think it is much better to just stick with what already works just fine and concentrate on the things that reallyl do make a difference in search engine ranking. things like content and inbound/outbound links etc.

I'm baaaaaccckkkk. still doing work on donation basis. PM your needs.
