Why can't you add friends on the forum?

What would that even do? You can of course Follow people you want to keep track of.

I feel like it just encourages people to interact more with each other outside of threads. I mean you don't follow people to chat with them frequently, you follow them to see what they write in public..

I don't personally see the purpose, then, with no real functionality. You hopefully don't need help keeping track of who your friends on the forum are, and if you want to keep an eye on what they post or whatever, you can use the Follow system.

It was a feature on the old forum, for what that's worth.
Sure, and the functionality of it basically boiled down to what the Follow list does in XenForo. Assuming you're talking about the Buddies list in SMF.
