I don't think you can do what you're asking, but you might want to look at screen(1). But, if you're actually talking about BitchX - you can use /detach to detach from it, switch tty's and issue `scr-bx` to bring it back on your new term.

You could also launch programs and still be able to use xterm by putting a "&" iafter the program name.

Example:
