Or should I choose ircd hosting...?

instead of vps with ircd allowed in order to implement browser-based public and private chats on my site?

Question is similar as "webhosting or vps to host a site". Depend from your needs, guess. VPS is more flexible and if you also need few bounchers, bots or services... it would be better choice.
You also mentioned BROWSER based chat, so you need place for your web browser script (vps again..). I can see only advantages in vps case unless there's problem to manage it - in this case IRCd server set up by irc shell provider would be better choice (however you still need a place to put web browser chat script).

if you choose vps you can combine the 2, with ircd and web hosting you will have it in separate places.

well, i will develop a flash client for that matter, so no need for php or something. though i will have to run an extra background process to allow access for flash-based clients via socket.

Flash client still need to be hosted somewhere, correct? At vps, guess.
IRC shell providers also limit number of users per IRCd. More users = higher package (higher costs).
