IceChat did come with help files.
Clicking the ? button at the bottom where you type, will bring up a menu to teach you basic irc commands. IceChat told you this when you first started it, unless you chose not to read it.

To "make" a channel, you simply join one. If the channel did not exist before hand, it will be new, with only you in it, thus, a newly created channel.
If you want to keep the channel, you register it. This will be different for each network you join, so check out
their website or #help channel for information on that. You can ask in the help channel on information about bots as well, as this is also different per network.

Good luck and have fun.
