Do you already have a social website? If yes, there are many softwares that can be used for messaging. The type of software to use depends on what dynamic language you use in your website.

Hi papatee!

The type of software you need depends on your requirement. Yes, you can easily extend a social networking software, as many of them offer an API to program.
