Not positive, please correct me if I'm wrong, but you might check to see if there's a dcop call to do that.

To see what functions are available use the dcop brower, kdcop, and look in the kopete section. (Kopete must be running.)

Good Luck

You can use the KIMProxy class…ssKIMProxy.html
to talk to any application that implements the KIMIface interface.

This includes Kopete (KIMIface was born there) and a couple of other applications, like Konversation and the next version of the Licq KDE GUI.
