Creating Custom Channels

I am creating a plugin to send SMS, and am currently dispatching a right hand sidebar to contain the front-end, but was wondering about integrating it into the left hand sidebar, with a section for sms conversations and channels for each conversation. Is there a way to create channels, or interact with the left hand sidebar to make custom components that will look like default channel conversations with custom methods and functionality?
