    If continuity is enabled then yes, if I’m not mistaken. Natively, no. Then again, it has been a while since I’ve use my iPad for texting purposes. Anyway, hopefully someone who frequent text via an iPad will reply soon.

    The answer to your first question is SMS.
    Second is yes, but there’s a ‘but’:
    Settings —> Messages —> Text Message Forwarding has to be enabled on all iDevices you want to text with (iMessage and SMS).
