Can I use a comma before and after 1 word
E.g - blah blah blah, therefore, blah blah

That is incorrect usage. Here is a website that explains when to use commas:

You can, but it’s better to put a full stop before the word:

blah blah blah. Therefore, blah blah

There’s this website I wanted to name in my essay and I wanted to explain what it is and this is how I did it -
E.g ‘The Student Room’: a website in which blah blah
would this be punctuated correctly?

For that it would be used as parentheses which is fine, the example with "therefore" didn't work though.

Grammar is for bad writers; Good writers bend the rules.
