check appexchange.com to see if there any existing integrations out there.  there's no way to directly send SMS from Apex, you'd need to either 

 

1. Do it the hack way, via carrier device email, like <phonenumber>@messaging.sprint.com

2. Integrate with a 3rd party service like Clickatel

clickatel has an API, so yes.  as far as how hard it'd be, not sure.  if it's on the appexchange, easy, if not, you'd have to write your own integration for it.
