I want to make it so when i boot up my computer, pidgin starts on workspace 2, and xchat starts in workspace 3.
is this possible?

I don't think so, not with Gnome anyways.

is there a program or something maybe? i was thinking maybe i could write a script to launch the program, then pull it over to the proper workspace.

I think devilspie can be used to do this, although I haven't tried it myself.
If you use compiz you can also use the Place Windows plugin to keep windows on a specific workspace.
