Well, how to do it has been sufficently explored, but I might warn you that simply setting the TERM environment is not usually enough for most interfaces. I don't know what you're doing, but be aware that whatever is reading your TERM will expect your script to process that terminal type's escape and control codes. This may or may not be an issue for you. I have actually run into programs that restricted access based on terminal type as a simple security measure.
