It's not quite clear what you are trying to do.  If you want your HUD to say (or shout) some preloaded phrases in chat when you click on a HUD button, that's fairly easy.  Assuming that you have written the part of the script that recognizes which button you touched, just use llSay (or llShout) to put its message in chat.

If you want it to somehow pick up things that are already in chat and rebroadcast them, though, that is a bit harder and is not very wise.  You can certainly write a script to listen to open public chat, but that will create some lag for you and everyone else on the region. It will also rebroadcast everything that it hears, unless you take steps to filter out people you don't want it to listen to -- which will also slow things down.  All in all, it's a bad idea.
