> Anyone know what it takes to get equipment installed on cell towers or other
Cell tower owners almost NEVER share their tower. There are some
co-location sites but lots of times you see several cell towers next to each
Non-cell towers are different. Some are dedicated (i.e. ATT long-lines)
but others rent space. The trick is finding out who the tower belongs to and
getting in touch with them.
> Licenses? Certifications?
You may need licenses for your transmitting equipment. There's some
spread spectrum stuff being sold that doesn't require licensing.

Other than an FCC license if necessary, that's about it. There's no
building permit for this kind of thing.

What part do you want done - the licensing or the installation or both?
There are some tower service companies in your area I'm sure. Just contact
one of them to get started. They might also have some of the information
you're looking for as well.
