Bots are more common on EFnet, and most likely unless you run your own room (channel), you will not be needing one. Bots are often used to op the owner in the channels they join, voice certain users, etc. On DALnet, there are services such as nickserv and chanserv which are provided to you for assistance. On EFnet however, there are no services at all, therefore to avoid channel problems, bots are used. For help with DALnet services type /chanserv help for assistance with various channel aspects, and /nickserv help for help with nicknames and such. These will of course give you a list of commands available, and from there you can go further into detail.
