This is done as part of the installation of Mailman.

It can. You need to decide whether you are talking about creating your
own Mailman installation on your own server, or just creating a list
on some existing Mailman installation of some service provider.

In the former case, you need to download the software from
<http://sourceforge.net/projects/mailman/> and read the installation
manual at <http://list.org/mailman-install/index.html> (both of these
links can be found at <http://www.list.org/> or the mirror at
<http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/>). Or, you may be able to
install an rpm or other package from your OS vendor.

In the latter case, you need to identify and contact a provider who
will host your list for you.
