Is there any chance of developing one general package that can
handle Matrix as weill as IRC, using the same user interface for

I don't think so.  While Matrix serves some similar purposes as IRC,
they are very different technically.

However, Matrix is designed to be able to bridge various protocols,
including IRC.  And the Libera.chat IRC network already has a Matrix
bridge, so you can join any of their channels through bridged Matrix
rooms.  For example, #emacs:libera.chat is the bridged Matrix room for
the Libera.chat #emacs IRC channel.

So, with Ement: "M-x ement-join-room RET #emacs:libera.chat RET" (after connecting with "M-x ement-connect RET", of course; and one can register an account on the matrix.org homeserver for free).

Maybe GNU/FSF would be interested in hosting a Matrix homeserver
someday.  Then there could be official rooms for various projects, like
#emacs:gnu.org for Emacs, and GNU/FSF members could have accounts on the server, like @rms:gnu.org.
