So,
I have 2 routers hooked up. 1 is plugged in directly to the internet (It's a SMC7004VBR) Hooked up to that is:

2 computers, a phone and another router. The other router is a Netgear WGR614v5. I have a plug going from the SMC to the Netgear WAN.

Then I have a cable going from the first slot of the Netgear router to yet another computer. That one I had to hook the Netgear router up to because I couldn't ping servers, or connect to some, host them, etc.

And as I don't have access to the SMC control panel I can't port forward from there. So I set the Netgear as my default gateway on only the one computer and forwarded the ports, so now I can ping servers and join them, but I still can't host them. Any ideas what might cause that?

If you dont have access to the SMC's panel then either:

1) reset it and get the password from their website or the person that set it up

or

2) Switch the Netgear out and put it in the SMC's place and vise-versa

The way you have it setup now, in order to host a game off of the Netgear, you will need to port forward from the SMC to the Netgear and then from the Netgear to your PC hosting the game.
