Pro temp moderators are generally appointed by Stack Exchange about three weeks into the public beta. This gives the community time to let the leadership naturally bubble to the top and for it to become clear who is likely to be able to fill the role based on the guidelines in A Theory of Moderation.

Now, I've certainly seen proposal creators be selected as pro temp moderators, but these individuals were heavily involved in the beta period of the site and demonstrated the qualities necessary to be a good, patient moderator and champion of the community.
