As Panzer stated, it's just what comes from reserves (deep strike, flyers, outflanking models etc.)
Regarding SMS I have mixed thoughts on it since it does say the weapon needs LoS to fire interceptor, but obviously SMS says it doesnt need SMS. I tend to say SMS does in fact need LoS and in practice your SMS isn't going to kill much coming in from reserves anyway (but that is obviously situational)...

What I am saying is that the Homing rule from our codex allows us to manipulate steps 2-3 you listed above (we select a unit out of LoS and fire with SMS), but that assumes step 1 already was allowed to happen. During a normal shooting phase step 1 happens because its your shooting phase and that's simple enough. The way intercept is worded people can claim step 1 doesnt get to happen unless the model can see the target and is allowed to make a shooting attack.
