Joining Matrix Rooms from XMPP

Previously, I'd known about the BiFrost bridge, and joining Matrix rooms using your XMPP account, but struggled to find any clear information how to achieve it... So I'd setup a Matterbridge server for some of the rooms I was interested in; but that changed today..
Here is the link on how to join Matrix rooms (and direct chats), and vice versa..
The BiFrost server is hosted by Matrix.org.
I haven't tested any servers beyond Matrix.org, but the one's I did try, have all worked.
I did notice that on some rooms, I had to alter my nick as it complained that the username was already taken. This was simple enough on Blabber, by just going into the room settings, and adding something extra to my nick e.g _xmpp is what I used...
