Can I send Bitcoins without a wallet

How can I send bitcoins to someone, without having to purchase them first or set up a wallet?

I’m looking for a service that will send N bitcoins to a given address. I pay them with my credit card or paypal. I don’t wish to purchase any bitcoins myself, have a wallet, set up any kind of account, or give anyone my email address. I don’t want to know anything about bitcoins beyond my initial instruction to send N bitcoins to a given address. Does such a service exist?

Will hashing bytes from /dev/urandom yield a secure private key?

From what I’ve read, a Bitcoin private key is a 32 byte long integer. I take this to mean that to have a valid private key, all I need is 32 random bytes and that, by extension, running

dd if=/dev/urandom bs=1 count=128 | sha256sum 

will give me a perfectly secure private key.

Is this correct or have I missed something important?
