I would like to know how to add my Stack Overflow chat account to the Pidgin Instant Messenger client.

Could you share your ideas?

Consider using the web client. I usually hate web-based chats but the SO chat is extremely awesome. – ThiefMaster Mar 7 '13 at 12:38

You can't, not without external software that creates a bridge.

See this project to create a IRC bridge as a starting point if you want to build one yourself. Or try and help out with the XMPP bridge for a different angle to the problem.
