Precisely what you need to do depends on who your phone company is. It
is frequently done by sending e-mail to an SMS gateway. There are
various ports designed to enable scripting of sending SMS-es to
particular providers -- see comms/p5-SMS-Send-*
If you have a GSM modem or mobile, there are about 4 or 5 ports you
could choose from. Just do a 'make search name=sms' in /usr/ports.
No idea about leaving a voice message -- doing voice synthesis is pretty
well covered, but making a computer dial a phone and speak into it?
