I've been using Twilio for voice and I've been quite impressed. I'm sure their SMS system isn't much different. This will allow you to send to any carrier without knowing the email address to send to (as I've noticed they change over time).

There are many SMS services that will allow you to set the originator to your Google number. If you are planning to send to the US, then this is different because the US carriers require to certify the originators (in most cases) so the end user can also opt out, request information about the service, etc, but if you are planning to send SMS to other ...

A provider supporting both MO & MT messaging (Mobile Originating and Terminating, respectively) is Clickatell. Based on your intentions, I believe you're looking for long code support, which Clickatell definitely does. Related reading that will assist: Clickatell's API documentation, including HTTP/S, FTP, SMTP, etc. Clickatell's "callback" ...
