So is there any apps that would let me text to a short code number from my iPod touch.

Viber should work, it says iPhone in the app description but you can use it on an iPod or iPad as long as you have wifi. When you download it you'll be asked for a number to link it to (just enter your normal mobile/cell number), then you'll get a text on your phone with a code, enter the code into Viber and it'll be activated and you can make free calls and texts from your iPod (as long as you have wifi). I'm sure there's other similar apps but this is what I use and it works well

never tried but i don't see why not, it work just like a normal phone. It's free anyway so you can try it and, if it doesn't work, delete it with no harm done

short codes are vastly different from real phone numbers. No service instead of cell providers will let you text short codes. I'm sorry but you are out of luck. And not even all cell providers have the ability to text short codes too.
