Do you think it would be possible to make some sort of a tutorial on how to take an app that is FOSS and make it into a PortableApp? Because I would love to learn how to do that but I have no idea. I'd like to learn how to take the files of the app and sort them into App and Data folders, make the launcher, make the installer, etc. Is there any way that I could somehow learn this?

Working on it

I made unofficial specs/howto (John recomends not to use it, but everyone objected).
I also made a PAF template (w/ readmes)
And you could just look at the official portable apps and base your app off of those.
Basically, just do whatever you can with the launcher to make it save to Data.

Insert original signature here with Greasemonkey Script.

great idea!
I'm trying to make an app myself and am getting stuck in a few places so that would be a great idea to help those learning programing and nsis

Lead, Follow, or get out of the way.
