In addition to capturing the @exitcode OUTPUT and @sqlerrorcode OUTPUT from the command line, I wish to also capture the the SQL Backup messages that are returned in the first dataset. Can anyone tell me how to do this?

    Use the SINGLERESULTSET option e.g.
    CREATE TABLE #sqb (DATA NVARCHAR(4000)) 
    
    INSERT INTO #sqb EXECUTE master..sqlbackup '-sql "BACKUP DATABASE pubs TO DISK = [<AUTO>] WITH SINGLERESULTSET"'
