Google Voice (GV)allows you to redirect calls to different phones
including cell phones. GV has voicemail and can send and receive and
can redirect SMS to any cell phone you like. With Skype you have to
pay to send SMS and won't allow you to receive unless you have a cell
phone and as far as I know doesn't redirect it. Skype you will need to
install a client but with GV all you need is a browser.
