For changing the status, it should be enough to send custom presence directly
to the gateway JID (set the to= of the presence stanza, some clients support
it, in others you might have to use the XML console).
For the nickname part, I think this is the gateway's business, so as long as
it reads it from the vCard there's little you can do (patching the pyMSN-t
I hope that helps.
