I believe all you should know about forecasting is detailed in the ARW v4 User's Guide. You should download it and thoroughly read it several times.

In short, in order to perform regional forecast, you need:
- Global model forecasts to initialize. It MUST be forecast files. Otherwise you will be dynamically downscaling.
- Running your simulation. Choose your schemes carefully.
- Some sort of postprocessing depending on the variable you want to forecast. Typically you will perform MOS.
