This is just an idea... if you look at the JVCL pack (which is free and opensource) it did have some stuff that seems related to what you're looking for - it does come with a 'demo' (I'm not sure if it's something you have to compile though) where you can get an idea of all its components and their capabilities - I know there was for example a TLabel with an invisible background, there was one label type component where the text bounces around a box, etc.
Not sure about 3D text.
