Making friends is the easy part. Text chat while in game and you'll meet many interesting people. Over time they may become friends of yours. If you feel like it, just click Add Friend from the Friends menu and enter their name.

Modify guns.....eh I dunno.

It was probably the berserk mutator. Also, you can text with I think any usb keyboard. Just plug it into the ps3.

Oh sorry I didn't realize you had PS3. The reason I said text chat is that the in game voice chat is all scratchy and unintelligible on the PC. PS3 is a different story. If you have a microphone you should use that for chat on the PS3. However the current version is having mic problems. Here is the solution for that:

The Microphone doesn't seem to work on the PS3 version:
Status: OPEN (1 solution/1 work around available)
Solution: UT3 uses a "hold to talk" method that requires you press the right d-pad down while you talk, like a walkie-talkie.
Work Around: UT3 requires that your microphone is enabled prior to launching the game. Please follow these steps to ensure it is:
1) In the XMB go to Audio Settings
2) Connect bluetooth device
3) Talk into the mic to confirm that it is indeed connected (you'll see a colored meter shrink and grow to the sound of your voice)
4) Choose OK once confirmed
5) Start the game.

About those kinds of weapons modifications I can help you on. Those are called mutators. There are some like "Speed Freak" which raises the game speed to about the level the PC plays at. "Super Berserk" makes all weapons fire about twice as fast. I'm not sure about PS3, but when selecting a server you should see a box on screen entitled "mutators." Anything in the box is something that may alter the gameplay. Servers without any mutators are known as "Pure" servers and they track stats separately from non-pure servers.

Don't worry about the questions, the community is usually pretty helpful.

Have fun!

You can use a mouse and keyboard and chat with a mic. You can't create maps or mods with the PS3 version, but you can download any custom content that has been cooked for the PS3.
