As for IM apps look for an open source one and examine it's code for references.

As for using the chat online I think Java would suit you well. That is of course if you know how. :P

My best advice is C++, alot of people know it so you can get alot of help... Learning C++ is not very hard ethier , I've been using it for about 5 months and i programed our robot for the robotics team at my school. A free complier that would work is Visual C++ 2008, It's by Microsoft.
