I am trying to put ads between category nodes on my site. Essentially I want to do this, but I am not sure how to do it.

First you need to wrap forums list in a div and before it add another div for left side. In forum_list.html find
Code:
    <xen:if is="{$renderedNodes}"><xen:include template="node_list" /></xen:if>
and replace with something like this
Code:
    <xen:if is="{$renderedNodes}">
        <div class="websiteLeft">
            Your ad code here!
        </div>
        <div class="websiteMiddle">
            <xen:include template="node_list" />
            <div style="linkUnit"> Your link unit here! </div>
        </div>
    </xen:if>
and add CSS entries for it:
Code:
.websiteLeft
{
    float: left;
    width: 160px;
}

.websiteMiddle
{
    margin-left: 170px;
}
 
.linkUnit
{
    margin: 5px auto;
    width: 468px;
}
 
.websiteMiddle:after
{
    content: '';
    display: block;
    clear: both;
}
That should take care of left side bar.

To add ads before categories, edit template note_category_level_1.html. At the end of file add something like this:
Code:
<li class="noteAds">
  Ad Unit Here!
</li>
and add css for it like this:
Code:
.nodeAds
{
    margin: 5px auto;
    width: 728px;
}
Add all that CSS for to EXTRA.css template
