As I'm certain I've told you before the 'name' of the conversation is the
buddy with whom you are having the conversation. The account is the local
account you are having the conversation with.

So to have a conversation from your yahoo account 'account1' with buddy
'yahoo_buddy_1' you would Purple::Accounts::find('account1', 'prpl-yahoo')
and then Purple::Conversation->new(1, $account, 'yahoo_buddy_1').
