Something that may be a really daft question to everyone who has experience with
IRC bots: How is it actually run, and kept running? By visiting a URL on the
Drupal site and having PHP enter a loop it never leaves?

Most shared hosts disallow "permanently running programs" such as IRC bots that
are started via the shell. Will a module like this fall under that rule?
