I am not aware of any extensions at GTalk which allow you to send SMS.
When there are some then point me to the docs and I can tell you how to use them without libraries.

I don't know. You have to ask the developers if they do it over XMPP. Or contact Google directly.

makes sense. So you cannot use it until Google makes this service public. Once they do it they normally publish the protocol.
