Autommatic, Wordpress developers have done this because their main service wordpress.com uses the same feature. Today this feature is very popular if you are doing something more than a personal blog about cats. Nodebb has a ton of examples of how other forum services (like Reddit) were made. Maybe it will be their way too. In any case, I hope that someone will make a plugin that allows you to use one file base and easily manage many forums from one place.
How does the NodeBB database system works
I am new to NodeBB so during the installation process I hace heard of MongoDB. What is that, where is that stored? I have a SQL database (username of database, database name, host and password) will my SQL database work during the installation process / how do I use it?

MongoDB is a NoSQL database. It's a non-relational database of keys-values objects.
NodeBB doesn't use SQL, so you will not use your SQL database to make NodeBB work.
