I have been using the PHP-Fusion CMS for a very long time and currently have two sites running PHP-Fusion. I am building a third and am weighing my options when it comes to which CMS to use. CMS Made Simple is a candidate very high on my list and I am hoping someone here can answer my questions about it.

First, is CMS Made Simple similar to PHP-Fusion? Does it come with a forum, articles, news, downloads, weblinks, photo gallery and user submissions for all those?

Second, is there an abundance of Modules for CMS Made Simple? I am going to need the following for my new site:

A E-Commerce System
A User Points System (where users can earn and spend points)
A database for medical treatment centers with maps
A database for pharmacies with maps
And quite a lot of the Addons PHP-Fusion has.
Shoutbox
Live Chat

Does CMS Made Simple already have Modules/Addons for these types of things?

Also, does it have user profiles where fields can be added and removed?

I want to understand a bit about it and see which CMS is best. So far I like what I see with CMS Made Simple but not sure it will work for me.

I don't know PHP-Fusion. CMS Made Simple does have modules, here are suggested modules to check out for:
Forum: ? not sure
Articles/news: "News" is a core module or use http://dev.cmsmadesimple.org/projects/cgblog (arguably better)
Downloads: http://dev.cmsmadesimple.org/projects/jmdownman
Weblinks: http://dev.cmsmadesimple.org/projects/linkmgr
Gallery: http://dev.cmsmadesimple.org/projects/gallery or http://dev.cmsmadesimple.org/projects/showtime2

Further:

A E-Commerce System:

A User Points System (where users can earn and spend points):
?

A database for medical treatment centers with maps
A database for pharmacies with maps:
http://dev.cmsmadesimple.org/projects/companydir combined with http://dev.cmsmadesimple.org/projects/cggooglemaps2

And quite a lot of the Addons PHP-Fusion has.

Don't know of any modules but it is possible to integrate most 3rd party tools, just like you would in a static website.

Yes, admin area user profiles can be controlled very finely, in Admin > User Management > Backend group permissions

Take a look at a demo at https://www.softaculous.com/demos/CMS_Made_Simple

There are lots of modules available, others may have different ideas on solutions.
