I note that the osx wallet for name coins trys to reach irc.
Is that normal ?
Yes, namecoin is based on Bitcoin 0.3.24, which is before IRC was removed or a config file option was added to enable or disable it.

I feel so dumb here... How do I start? What is first thing I need to do to get signed up so I have an account where I can generate a namecoin address to be able to generate an address for mining reward deposits?

The Namecoin software is console-only, it is based on bitcoind. Running it is similar to running another copy of Bitcoin, it has it's own wallet and blockchain.

If you don't need Namecoins and only want to sell them (you don't want a Namecoin domain name etc), then you likely just want to send them to an exchange and use that like an online wallet. https://exchange.bitparking.com is the oldest and largest for NMC<->BTC, but as the previous poster alluded to, they have one-time-use deposit addresses, so you can't automate multiple pool withdrawls.

http://ozco.in pool has an option to "enable automatic Namecoin exchange into Bitcoin".

So the mining place says you can mine Namecoins simulatneously as I mine bitcoins. But I need a namecoin wallet. I've looked and found info on everything but how to set up a namecoin wallet. What is the easiest way to get a namecoin account set up?

use the BTC-E namecoin wallet for keeping your namecoins.

they never change your sending address.
