To play mp3's from commandline I usually just use mplayer, but you might 
also want to check out musicpd allthough that might be a little to 
drastic for what you want. For cd-writing I use the burncd command, it 
comes with the cdrecord port. If you allready had some (gui) progam to 
burn cd's you can count on it you allready have cdrecord installed :)

For IM-programs  ( don't know if you use them ) you might want to check 
out irssi + bitlbee
