Question make a program change from background to a new terminal, HELP!

hi, im making a program for university, and i would like to know if there's a way to send a program that's running on background a user-made signal, and when the signal handler reads it, make the program change from background to a new terminal (console)?
my biggest issue is the last one, please if you know how tell me.

Thanks Damian.

None that I'm aware of ... it would mean to change
the parent (its originating terminal) which sounds a
bit strange to say the least ... if I need to get to a
process by some means I'd run it in a screen
session (man screen for details).
