Is it possible to add or create a discussion board for a site? Many of the resources I find describe how to add a post to an already existing discussion board, but no mention of how to create one.

Please see: How to reply to discussion board

I have come across the createNewDiscussion utility method, but it appears to involve passing a list first. Is a discussion board just a list with a different interface?

Is implementing the utility function described above the correct path to take?

Also, please note that I am currently utilizing CSOM to communicate with SharePoint.

A Discussionboard is nothing but a list with the ListTemplateType.DiscussionBoard. So yes: This is the correct path. Create a list using the correct type and follow the links you already mentioned.
