"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
