How can Pidgin be started with a chat window already opened to talk to a certain client? Our goal is to open Jabber chat from a Contact list web application.

Something like: pidgin.exe -talkto:JABBER_ID

Could this be done?

I sounds like something you would like to realise through an IM: URL. You can do something like:
