All of your requirements can be configured into a GeoMoose interface. 

The lookup aspects will require some extra setup steps, but everything you want out of the ease of use as well as the basic list you describe here of capabilities is in or can be added to a GeoMoose instance. 

Take a look at the online demos here: http://www.geomoose.org/info/demo.html  If they look like they might work for you you can get started with GeoMoose here: http://www.geomoose.org/index.html  with the how-tos on that page.

Hello all,

I am calling upon your Open Source expertise. I'm currently working on an  online [censored] map for a community project. I am trying to find the right map server or web map services that would enables us to make the most of this project. I feel a little overhelmed with all the different options online and thought you could maybe make a few recommendations. 

Here are some more details on what I am looking for. 

At its most basic, I look for a server that enables to see georeferenced features on a basemap, click on a feature to display more information and also edit information. Ideally I am looking for a mapserver supporting WFS, enabling the display of multiple layers (that could be switched on/off) supporting simple queries ( intersect, buffer) and maybe also enabling links and photos. 

Unfortunately there are two main constraints: my limited knowledge in programming (I only know a little python and no java whatsoever) and user-friendliness of the finished platform is essential as it is aimed to local communities with limited computer skills.
