As far as I know this is not possible. Fields cannot overlap.
It is possible but not for all formats. See:
So if you output the result to PDF you can place a textbox over an image.

But you can also use a Rectangle (or other control that has a BackgroundImage property like a Matrix or Textbox) and use that control to display the image. For example you can put a Rectangle on the report, set the BackgroundImage of the Rectangle to the image you want to display and then place the text box inside the rectangle.
