This could either appear as it's own forum or something (where the blog entries or articles show up as posts), or just be a separate thing that I can link to on the main page, if that makes sense.
That's already built into phpBB using ATOM feeds, for example see the feed page for the board here: feed.php
Some information on how to configure feeds is in FAQ: phpBB ATOM feeds
If you mean you want to show feeds from external sites you could add a page to your board, Add a New Custom Page to phpBB
and include the feeds on it.
