I don't think it's possible to send an SMS through USB - it'll go through the wireless network.

Will this mobile device always be connected to the PC through USB? If so, could serial communication over USB be used for the data transfer?

Unless you can find a way for the PC to receive an actual SMS from the phone, the likeliest is that the solution will involve USB. The JavaIoFaq links to an article on Java und USB; that may be a good start.
