What engine is better to use when creating the forum? Paid or free? Like the most common engine - PhpBB. It is worse than Hantoro, Invision Community?

The difference is that when you use commercial products you believe in supporting developers, and the use of opensource in self-support, on their own, or in support of some third-party company that specializiruetsya commercial services to users opensource. This is a fundamental difference.
Thus, in the General case, there is no reason to believe that commercial support automatically means quality - Krivorukov programmers and administrators on the salary at large firms.
The rest generally does not directly related to the fact whether the product is commercial.

Usually that's free, has a very crappy support. Or no: there is a problem — it's your choice.

You should already smoothed out the difference and now there is no simple answer as to what this engine is worse, and this is better. They are all about the same in terms of functionality, capabilities, etc.
Rather, there is a difference in code quality and degree of support from the developers. 've already poetically here, I'll just clarify.
Commercial engines assume that by purchasing their product, you will receive a communication channel directly with the developers. Thus when difficulties arise, it is possible to them to consult or seek assistance. In fact things are not so rosy, often, product support is lame, even if you paid the money. And tasks solution is performed for money. About code quality and documentation - everything is not very rosy.
Open-source (I don't like the word free, it's not the same) - is engines with open code that can be downloaded is usually free of charge and without any restrictions use to implement your project. Often the quality code and documentation in such projects is better than in commercial, purely due to the fact that it is open-source. That is, there will always be people who will find shoals and crutches, correct them, describe, etc. True for large and well-known projects. But with support for more difficult - you can only find it from third parties, or on the forums and on the Internet. There could be as lucky with the quality. And to push the problem to tech support too often do not succeed - you have to be ready for it.

Documentation and support. Have paid usually on the head better.
Moreover, there is a system of making money:
  1. Make the product.
  2. Let everybody use it for free.
  3. But all the wishes, all the instructions, any problems, etc. - just for money.

And alone, and others are now writing anyhow.
If you need a GOOD forum need specific TK.
Then 3 options:
1. Write themselves (with their hands)
2. Order with "zero" TK (TK is also a fee!).
3. Take open-source, and SHOVELED it in order to eliminate all bugs and make it fit for your TK (first: understand the architecture, API, etc...). Missing - will have to finish.

And make mandatory testing for work and safety in any of the cases.

I would choose (in order of priority): 1, 3, 2.
