>>I mean how can you bold

Set the font

yourLabel.setFont(new Font("sanserif", Font.BOLD, 12));

>>and change the size of a Label...

That depends on its context...

you can use the getFont method, get the font attributes and use these attributes to build your new font.  

    Font myFont = myLabel.getFont();
    Map myMap = myFont.getAttributes();
    myMap.put(TextAttribute.WEIGHT, TextAttribute.WEIGHT_BOLD); // bold font
    Float myFloat = (Float)myMap.get(TextAttribute.SIZE);
    Float newFloat = new Float (myFloat.floatValue() + 2); // increasing the size
    myMap.put(TextAttribute.SIZE, newFloat);
    myLabel.setFont(new Font(myMap));
