So I want to build a paintball cannon thing to shoot nerf rockets. What parts would I need?

The very basics include a 2in diameter piece of PVC pipe, a valve, and some metal pipe to act as a volume chamber between your valve and air source. Also, depending on the event's rules, you'll probably need to incorporate a regulator just after the air source to be able to make sure you're under the FPS limit for the launchers.

Here's instructions for a super basic one:

make sure you ask whatever field or event producer that you attend what would be required to make it field legal. For example, Andrew and myself had to modify a design we are doing to incorporate safety features that Viper requires for his events.
