they have a list of posts "Love it or hate it"

title - linking to post or page

comment box

It acts similar to a news post excerpt except they include a comment box on the excerpt and I wondered if this was possible to do with pagelines posts or boxes?

That love it/leave it feature is powered by this plugin:

You can install it and activate it for posts. To get a similar layout, enable Magazine Mode in Site Options > Blog And Posts.

homepage "love it hate it" posts

So far I have tried a few things

The plugin only creates the rating capability. WordPress already has a default function for adding comments to posts. You cannot create the ability to comment on just the post excerpt.

No, there is no plugin that would allow someone to comment on Box content. If you need someone to comment on your content, you'll need to use the blog posts.
