I'm not exactly sure on the best way to make a bowfront stand, but this how-to may help you out.

You want a smooth curve? That's kind of hard to do AFAIK. You could try finding some wood that's flexible, and putting some 2x4's (or whatever you use for braces) to hold it in place. Sort of hard to explain. Otherwise, you could use a few panels and put them at angles, but it wouldn't make a smooth curve.

You can always get a curve, it's just more work and its harder. It's up to you. I guess I didn't explain it well either. You can always bend wood, but I wouldn't know any good ways to do it. Try googling something like 'diy bowfront aquarium stand' and you might get some results.
