the messages app is great but is there a tweak or something to text non imessages people?

maybe via my google voice number atleast?

in cydia there's a tweak called "sms GV extension"

integrates Google Voice SMS into your Messages app

is there something like this for the mac ?

Messages on the Mac allows for creating additional accounts. That said, I've the closest thing I've heard to what you're asking for is Project Amy

It should by possible with Jabber to SMS transport used in iMessages.app - I've no idea if there's some SMS transport in US / UK .. - Transport must be setup in adium or Psi as iMessages.app doesn't support XMPP/Jabber server discovery
