Use the Bluetooth SPP (Serial Port Protocol), or be somewhat more intelligent and just use ad-hoc wifi, since you're apparently running on a system that can run linux.

rfcomm is the SPP, yes.  If you've got embedded linux running, you can probably afford to put in a USB wifi dongle.  Then your life is much easier - the protocols are all defined already, and you don't have to worry about low-level communications. 

If you must use bluetooth, be aware that it's not the easiest thing to configure - your best bet is to open an rfcomm tunnel between the two bots and pretend it's a serial port.

im refering this book so that i can get an idea on the bluetooth rfcomm programming.

Bluetooth essentials for programmers By Albert S. Huang, Larry Rudolph

Bluetooth to bluetooth rfcomm can be done by switching one of the modules to master mode, and creating a connection between the two.  Then, treat the resulting /dev/rfcomm* port as a serial port, which is much easier to deal with.  The book you list seems to be good, but I don't have any personal experience with it and thus cannot make a recommendation.
