You may want to double check the Yahoo rules and guidelines on using their messenger program.  It is possible this violates their rules of software use.  This also speaks to questioning why you would need the ip address of someone you are chatting with.  Only justifiable reason I could think of is if that person is engaged in some criminal activity.  But even then, you wouldn't really need the ip, you would report them to the appropriate authorities and let them handle it.

That being said, it's not hard to find how to get this information:

although be aware you may get only the ip address of the server yahoo is using.

Additionally, unless they are on a connection that has a static ip address, their ip will change occassionally.
