We did not have the need of contacting Amazon for support. The documentation they provide is of great quality. Examples are easy to follow. One thing to have into consideration is we didn't have the premium support for AWS, so I can't provide details on how good or bad this service is, but in general, the basic support I had was great.

The support from AWS has always been good. There is no complaint from my organization. Also, the documentation is very good so I don't find any difficulties in this. So overall it is a very easy and smooth process to adapt.

When service limits or troubleshooting issues have come up in the past, AWS support has always been very responsive and quick to make needed changes.

I've never needed it, due to the plethora of documentation online.

SES has proper SDK for most of the languages and it has good documentation for the same. If you are an intermediate level user or developer of AWS, you don't find SES as too difficult to implement. In case of some corner needs, you will find quick support on their forums and if you have set SLA, they respect it really well.
