How speak irc client and irc server program?
I want to write my own irc client program. I worked on socket programming some but
to do this I think I need to know connection commands and other commands between client program and server program. I looked rfcs but these are very detailed and complex to me.
All I want is connect to the channel and send-receive message others. which irc protocol commands I must know?

The RFCs are the guidelines for full IRC clients. If what you want is only a subset, then take that subset to create your application/worm/zombie.

(Sorry, it's just that most of the zombies on the net used for DDOS do exactly this.)
