hi,

you only have to register the transports. For that you need an account on a server that runs transports, or server that allows you to register to the transports over s2s. The transports translate the other IM protocols to XMPP. So you need no enhancements at all.
For example a JabberId of an icq user would look like this then:
123456789@icq.server.org
icq.server.org is the Jid of the icq transport/gateway.
So just send a xmpp message to 123456789@icq.server.org and the regular icq user will receive it.

No, you dont have to write own code. All is supported in the libary. It depends on your server which classes to use.
The "old" protocol uses jabber:iq:agents and jabber:iq:browse, newer servers normally use service discovery (disco).
The most active server still use agents. The lib requests the agents by default on each login. So you get the agents in the OnAgentItem event.
