Can you flesh out the requirement a bit? Is this for screen display,
slides or paper copies? Most publishing programs will allow one pdf
or whatever as the background for a page and another overlaying it
with text. Context (part of TeX) does this for example. And I am
also sure I can do it in Scribus. You can of course do it in Gimp
but each combined page would be a separate entity. And text would be
converted to bitmaps.
As the Vermont farmer said, "If I was goin' to Montpelier I sure
wouldn't start from here." I would look at other tools for this
Able Indexing and Typesetting
Precision typesetting (tm) at reasonable cost.
