Neither Verichat nor Webmessenger need BES and having a BES will not improve their response time. For both, messages are sent to their servers before going to the destination IM service and that can add some delay. Having said that, I've used both and have had only minor delay. Google talk doesn't need to go through intermediate servers so it's going to be the quickest. What kind of delay are you seeing?
Gmail account will work exactly the same with BES. There's no interaction between the 2.
Alternatively, you can use the google talk client and follow the instructions in the sticky at the top of the "Aftermarket Software" forum to get access to other IM services.
You can also buy the Webmessenger Jabber client for a one time charge and use it with Google Talk or another Jabber service and still get to the other IM services. This is what I do because I like the Webmessenger interface better than the Google Talk interface.
