Photoshop 2017: How to add an angled text with invisible background?

I have rotated images on PhotoShop, but need to add a line of text on an image I already rotated.

How do I do that?

And ow do I make the background transparent?

Adding text should be simple, but let's tackle the transparency first.

If your image is predominantly colorful with a white background, or predominantly light colored with a black background, there is a shortcut.  It isn't perfect, but should work most of the time in those situations.

Open your image in Photoshop.  Double-click the layer which should present a dialog box, just click OK.  Again, double-click your layer.  This time it will open the Layer Style dialog.  On the bottom, you should see an option for "Blend If:" with Gray selected and two sliders underneath.  If your image has a white background, click on the icon located on the right of "This Layer:" slider.  Slowly drag it to the left towards the center.  You shouldn't need to move it much before the background begins to disappear.  Be careful, as this will affect your entire image, if you drag too far.  If your image background is black, use the opposite icon and drag to the right.  Once you are satisfied, click OK.

For the type, create a new layer (not required, but highly advisable).  Now, select the "T" tool from your tools panel.  If you hold down, you will be presented with various options.  Once you have selected the proper tool, click and drag to create your text box.  Begin typing.  You can change the font, style, size, color, anytime after you are done.  If you are looking for specific help, then I would highly recommend a Google search, or create a new question.
