Extending Pidgin

Hi All,
I am a software engineer at lsf.
I have a P2P overlay network(Dcache <http://wathsalav.blogspot.com/> ) which
is a distributed web cache based on IP multicasting. Any computer in the
network can join or leave this P2P network at anytime. Now I want to publish
the presence of these nodes which are joining to P2P (This part is done with
avahi. Now I can publish the presence of nodes and can see those in pidgin).
So now when a node peer joining to overlay I can see it using pidgin as i
publish the node with avahi.

Then I want to give the chat facility to these nodes in pidgin without
creating accout in pidgin manually.

1)How can I do this? If any sources please put here.

2)In order to do this It is neccessary to customise pidgin ?

Or can this be done with no changes to pidgin source?
