How are these various company's aquiring these 5 to 6 digit text messaging numbers? For example, Z100 (a local NY radio station) says to text message all the requests to 55100. Can somebody please tell me how these are acquired?

These unique numbers are assigned by the wireless carrier as a marketing tool.

So, companies get these numbers from the wireless carriers, but then is there software to receive the incoming messages, or are these messages sent to someones phone?

Depends on your endpoint goal - in the case of your radio station example - I'll bet that when a listener text messages a request to the advertised number - it gets translated and emailed to the station - or they pick it up via a web connection with database import - the sky is the limit.
