Question about English (US)

What does "if you will" by Sheldon in his first line mean?
And what do "How wasted am I?" and the reply to it, "Dude" mean?

Sheldon: Like Jane Goodall observing the apes, I initially saw their interactions as confusing and unstructured, but patterns emerge, they have their own language if you will.
Leonard: Go on.
Sheldon: Well, it seems that the newcomer approaches the existing group with the greeting "How wasted am I?" which is met with an approving chorus of "Dude."
