So, basically what you want is:

1) Automated onboarding.
2) Way to match your existing contact lists to XMPP accounts.


AD 1) This is a touchy subject.
Discussed many times with no good solution AFAIR.
Made even worse with recent IM-SPAM outbreak and a push to disable in-
band registration.


AD 2) Fortunately finding friends is easy.
Buddycloud guys thaught of it long time ago and came up with
friend-finder service. It even has a free, working implementation:
https://github.com/buddycloud/buddycloud-friend-finder
It allows matching not only by telephone number, but also email,
twitter, skype, SIP, postal addres, etc. Whatever you wish basically.

Unfortunately it is not that popular... :-(
