You will find that in BT there are lots of specialized tools for a specific task.

Also using bt for chatting on irc is really kind of silly. Since if you do so as root some channels will not allow you to join. Others will realize the potential security risk that you have going and take advantage of it.
In order to get a user root privileges you should have a look at su and sudo
As well as user permissions

You will also find that there is not a lot of spoon-feeding here.
