I know that wireshark can monitor plaintext chats for IRC, facebook, gmail, etc etc, but has anyone tried to inject data packets to fake a conversation with someone? Meaning, the victim thinks they are talking to someone else..thanks!

Wireshark is a packet analyzer not a packet generator.

ah, thank you. I feel dumb now lol. I will try to edit the packets I capture in wireshark and inject them with something like Nemesis.
