Those "From" Apple that end @mac.com and @me.com are also valid AIM Names.
Any @mac.com name you have created at any point will work (forever and a day) in any version of iChat or Messages Beta with out issue.
This can be Trial accounts you set up or a paid for but lapsed or in some cased joined with a MobileMe issued @me.com
You cannot get a New MobileMe issued @me.com name.
You can create a new iCloud Issued @me.com name but this will only work in Lion or Above with iChat 6 or Messages Beta.
You do need a separate email from any other Apple ID you have.
Keep the password to 16 characters or less (AIM Server limit)
I am sure you can find iCloud.
This can be created from an Existing Apple ID/Email
Keep the password to 16 characters or less (Again).
The @mac.com name will not be a separate email but an iCloud one will.
