Not *sub*group. If you make it a subgroup, all permissions from subgoup are relayed to the parent group. So it has to be a different group. This is not a problem because one user can be in many groups. For example:
- All users
- Forum read-only users
- mail subscribers

Hmmm. I do not know such ext. May be someone else can advise.

Do not forget captcha. Robots are clever these days. Writing an automated request for membership and than making tons of spam is very simple. I sometimes catch such requests. They are not generic, they seem to be written for certain sites/extensions.
