Mid to Upper Level Holy Healing
Once you hit 85, and get into your first heroics, you'll get hit by even harder content.
at 85, healing a HoT, healing looks more like, renew on any lightly damaged teammate, Serinity on the tank, CoH when needed, PoH when needed, PoM on CD (and always on the tank), Heal when nothing else is needed, GH for heavy damage period, FH if someone is going to absolutly die if they don't get healed quick.

I think this input is crucial. It sounds like you've got some of the basics down pat (though, as it was noted above, healing will change drastically at 85).
Healing is mostly about reading tool-tips and truly understanding your spells and their strengths and weaknesses in certain situations. There isn't a rotation. It's about being able to interpret and anticipate incoming damage and knowing how most quickly and efficiently to repair that damage.
My advice is this:
1) Read your spell tool-tips and talents. Understand them as best you can.
2) Heal. A lot. Simply running through different content and healing different players of different styles and classes in different mechanics will really be the best experience for you.
3) HAVE FUN! :) Once you become more comfortable healing, it's very dynamic and can be very unpredictable and exciting.
Once you hit 80, and queue for your first dungeon, you're going get hit full-on by the totally different experience that is Cata healing. You will OOM after every pull. You'll need to get used to people not being topped off. You'll have to manage mana (read: know when to use SF & HoH)
This isn't true. Most people find the first few levels almost as easy as BC and Wrath healing. Level 83 is where mana troubles crop up.
As stated by others, you'll want to know your spells and abilities as you reach upper levels of healing.

Yep, and even in the worst circumstances in dungeons, generally you don't need SF or HoH, you just end up having to drink between every 2nd or 3rd pull.
as for add ons you probably want a raid frame/click casting add on like Healbot, Vuhdo or Grid + Clique. There are a few more like that, I'm sure. But those are the ones I know off the top of my head.
(edited for spelling!)
As for addons, one of the many raid-frame addons like Healbot and Vuhdo would be a good idea. I personally use Healbot, as it has all the tools I need and is easy to set up. I would also recommend IceHUD, an addon that gives you highly a customizable heads-up display. I have it in the center of my screen, giving me my health, mana, cast bar, cooldowns on several of my spells, and buffs I need to watch.
