Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I've asked my question in the title :).

Additionally, how much reputation will I need to do so, and what guidelines are linked with this?

Yes, any user with at least 100 reputation gets the privilege to create new chat rooms.

As the privilege page says:

When should I create a new chat room?

When you find yourself wanting to have an extended conversation about a topic that is not covered by one of the existing chat rooms, you should create a new room for it.

And finally at 1000 reputation you can create gallery chat rooms - these are rooms where you (as the owner) can decide who can and cannot talk.

You have answered the question most completely out of those who have, so the answer goes to you. It won't let me award it for another two minutes, so IOU 15 reputation :P. – cbroughton May 11 '11 at 12:45
@cbroughton, in that case, can I just warn you in advance that I charge ~1893% interest per minute... – DMA57361 May 11 '11 at 12:47

@cbroughton Oh well, worth a shot I suppose. ;P – DMA57361 May 11 '11 at 12:48

For those too lazy to click the link: it requires 100 reputation to create chat rooms both here and in the main SO site. :)
