Yeah it is possible, and yes you need to have access to an SMS Gateway machine.  It's basically a machine configured to receive & send SMS messages to mobile numbers.  The other way you could send SMS messages is if you knew the cellular provider for the destination phone number.  Most cellular companies allow you to send an SMS message as an email.  For example, if the destination phone number is 555-555-5555 and the cell provider is Telus (and you have a simple SMTP server running on your PHP machine), then you could send an email via php to 5555555555@msg.telus.com and the cell phone would receive an SMS containing the contents of your email.  Of course you can't send attachments or anything.

the easiest method to send sms is basic email.

You would need to know the service provider for the person you want to message.

AT&T Wireless number@mmode.com               http://www.mymmode.com/messagecenter/
Cingular          number@mobile.mycingular.com  http://www.cingular.com/sendamessage
Nextel            number@messaging.nextel.com http://messaging.nextel.com/
Qwest            number@qwestmp.com         http://www.qwestmp.com/
Sprint PCS      number@messaging.sprintpcs.com  http://messaging.sprintpcs.com/
T-Mobile        number@tmomail.net               http://www.t-mobile.com/messaging/
Verizon          number@vtext.com                 http://www.vtext.com/

The problem you will run into would be replys.
Everything you want to know is here.
