I need to conduct a load test on a Secure Instant messaging and Chat application. What protocol should I be using? Has anyone tested some application like this?

Ask the developer or architecht what protocol it is using. You should not have to guess.
If they don't know (e.g. it's an out of the box application) then your good friend Google might yield some information.
Failing that try using the Protocol Analyser (assuming you're on LR 9.5 onwards), or use Wireshark to have a look at the packets being sent and received and see if this helps.
