Linux Bash - Is it even possible to login into multiple email accounts?

Is it even remotely possible to create a bash script to login to gmail/yahoo/hotmail, thru different web browsers?

Sure. You could use bash and curl to do it for example (although not technically a web browser per say) and display the output formatted however you like. You could also look into using an app like getmail or fetchmail to download a local copy to work with in mutt or another mail client.
