Actually the answer directly above the FAQ entry in mbnoimi's answer is the one you want.

How do I make Enter make a newline and Ctrl+Enter send?

Locate or create your gtkrc-2.0 file and insert:

binding "my-bindings"
    bind "Return" { "insert-at-cursor" ("\n") }
    bind "<ctrl>Return" { "message_send" () }
widget "*pidgin_conv_entry" binding "my-bindings"
