    I don't know very much about 2 way communication, although I'm installing a cb in my truck, but can a cb radio communicate with 2 meter ham radios?

    Nope. You're gonna hafta install two radios, or convince all your friends to convert to one or the other.

    You also need a ham license for 2 meters, but its not that hard of a test for 2 or 440 (uhf-vhf).

    This link will give you some info
