IRC is internet relay chat--a fairly old (by internet standards) way of communicating. It's a big series of chat rooms, basically.

Sort of, but the primary function is to have large chat rooms--not as much individual person-to-person chats. The functionality is there to have individual IM-style chats, but it's mostly big chat rooms.

Yep! It's not actually on the forums, though--it's just accessed through them.
