Some applications like Word let you put a header on each page. This can be saved as part of NORMAL.DOT so it is automatically done.

Some drivers allow you to put a watermark on the page. This can be used to print some text on every page.

You can also use separator pages to print the username on a page printed *before* each print job.

In a general case, there is no way of doing what you want for all applications - unless you are wiling to write your own driver.

Some printers allow you to do this, but not many.
A lot depends on the printer model and the application.
It is possible to this with pcl commands applied in a dummy banner page.
