Assuming all versions work the same, you can put /msg nickserv ghost name password as a connect command under server settings for freenode.

To change your nick as well is a little tricky - type in

/msg nickserv ghost username password


/nick username

As one line. This should do both commands one after another

Try "/msg nickserv ghost ", without the quotes.

or rather, /msg nickserv ghost [username] [password]. This could be followed up by a /nick [username] so you don't end up with the wrong name anyway. – Phoshi May 29 '10 at 17:10
This is the standard way, not an automatic way as requested. – Robin Green Jun 26 '11 at 13:25
