>how to place text on appropriate image.

That can be done through your image software or you can make a background image and place html over it.

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>JS Bin</title>
  <style>
  .container{background-image:url(http://www.wallpaperfunda.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/images-2.jpg);
  height:400px; 
  }
    .myText{
      padding-left:50px;
      padding-top:150px;
      color:white;
      text-shadow: 2px 2px #ff0000;
    }
    </style>
</head>
<body>
<div class="container">
  <div class="myText">Hello World</div>
  
  </div>
</body>
</html>

You don't really say what you want to accomplish with your Internet site. Essentially, ALL sites have text and images and images with captions...

For example, you can create a free web site on www.wordpress.com and it is relatively simple to create hierarchical static pages - you don't have to use it as a blog.
