What if the ball is kicked through the goal post during kickoff?

nothing, a player will normally be there to catch it and play on. It's not a score because field goals must be attempted on a scrimmage down, not on a free kick like a kickoff. The only exception is the fair-catch kick, which allows you to attempt a field goal immediately after a fair catch. Therefore, if a kickoff goes through the uprights (and subsequently lands out of play), it is simply a touchback for the receiving team.
