and just not like a widget on the side.    

Before going any further, see my answer at:

about how to add a new widget area anywhere you want in a theme.


If you are still dead set on doing this without the widget, then the method is to locate a script that adjusts text size and works the way you like it and then add it directly to your theme's files.  You can call any files needed either using wp_register_script() / wp_enqueue_script() and CSS files using wp_register_style() / wp_enqueue_style().  The only modification to the template file would be the addition of the element(s) that are needed to place the controls per the script instructions.
