If I sent a message using the SMS app, is there a possibility that the person I sent it to would receive it on her/his WhatsApp? Or any other apps were there would receive it over WhatsApp if I don't have it installed on my phone?

No, the message will be sent as a SMS message and the receiver will handle the SMS with the built-in SMS app as well or a custom one (Go SMS, etc.). You can't send a SMS and expect to be delivered to WhatsApp. You still need WhatsApp for that operation.
