I'm wondering how I can create that for my site and how to do it properly to prevent any search engine misgivings.
I'm thinking I'll have to create the modification to the site myself, but I'm trying to find out how this is done, maybe there might be a tutorial for it.
I don't even know what its called, and splash page, landing page, enter page, all give me the wrong type of content.
1) Check for a cookie. They don't have a cookie, they haven't been to your site. Redirect them to your splash page
2) Check their referrer. If the request contains a referrer other then your site, redirect to the splash page.
3) Check their session. See the cookie above
I would never recommend using a splash page unless there was a positive business need such as an age restriction.
