Creating an app to add a function to Browser's "Share Page"

 Hi everyone,

I'll start by saying that I'm very new Android and Java programing
altogether.  I'm really interested in learning it, and I have an idea
that's really driving me.

My previous phone had an option in Pocket IE to "Send Link" to and SMS
recipient.  I haven't been able to do this within Android.  I would
like to develop an app that will add a "Messaging" option to the
"Share Page" function in Browser that would hand the link off to an
SMS message rather than a Gmail message.  I currently have Twitteroid
and Beelicious installed and both add an option to "Share Page".

Any suggestions on what I will need to do this?
