Anyone can submit a KIP. There is a standard format to follow to make KIPs easy to read and review. https://forum.rook.fi/t/kip-0-keeperdao-governance/41 If you are planning on submitting a KIP, it is recommended to attend at least one Workshop with other community members to gather feedback.
Firstly, there are no qualifying criteria for the Rook forum, all ideas are valuable in our eyes, no matter how they are presented. With that said, there are public DAO events multiple times a week. The calendar can be found here.

Sophons are expert members of the DAO who review pending KIPs and publish recommendations.
Sophons are initially elected and can be removed by KIP proposal. Becoming a Sophon is a large responsibility and signals that you have the time, attention, and technical understanding to respond to proposals. Because of this, the process of becoming a Sophon should be long and selective. https://forum.rook.fi/t/kip-1-initial-sophon-onboarding/42
