For example, if I am running Firefox and want to send a CTRL-T in order to open a new tab, is there a way that I can simulate the CTRL and T being pressed and then send it to a particular instance of a Firefox Window accordingly?

Boo to you too . . .  :)

I just had a poke in the Dictionary and found

send to program

which should do the trick; although 'tis Mac only . . .  :(
