@tindall I don't have an answer to the "how" question.
I just wanted to mention Matrix: a modern communication protocol with a client very similar to Slack/Discord. It's open in a proper way and may be apealling to developers.
Then there's XMPP. A mature protocol with varying support of extensions in clients. The protocol includes all sorts of modern bells and whistles: OMEMO, MIX, TOTP and lots more.
So it's not like there's nothing to replace IRC.
