Your question is a little cloudy to me. However,
I can see at least 3 possibilities.

1) Project your 3D point onto the screen using gluProject (or your own creation), and draw your text at the resulting position on the screen.

2) Same as one, but draw 3D text instead.

3) Draw your 2D text in the world using a sprite--either as individual quads or a single billboard.

4) Draw your 3D text in the world using polygons.

Woops, that was 4.
