Hotlinking Forum Names In Posts?

Hi everyone,
I know the basics about vB and have edited a few templates and code here and there, but nothing major. So, I was thinking the other day that if someone posted a thread (or reply) if within the text they reference a Forum, instead of manually having to make a hyperlink linking the text to the forum if somehow vB would auto-detect the name and hotlink it automatically.

Here's a more visual explaination:

Auto-detected forum post

I'm not exactly if this is even possible, but I was wondering if any of you coders out there would have any information about how to approach this. I've looked for mods and I haven't seen anything like this (AME is the closest). I'd imagine it'd just be some sort of simple If-then-else set of statements coming from basic coding experience but I'm not sure on specifics.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
Killerhands
