>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.

  <meta charset="utf-8">

  .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;
    }

<div class="container">

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.
