Make sure Text is on its own layer
Select Text Layer....
Layer>Layer Style>Blending Options....
select Drop Shadow so it is checked and highlighted..
change color from Black to whatever you want..
adjust the Angle, Distance and size to your preference...
Select and highlight Bevel and Emboss...
Style = Emboss... adjust depth and size to suit...
Change Shadow Mode Color to suit and adjust angle & altitude till pleasing
Click OK

If you want to use the same settings on different Text layers:
Right click the modified Text Layer.... Select "Copy Layer Style"
On other layers you want to apply the layer style... right click the layer and select " Paste Layer Style"

Re: Can someone add text to this pic for me?

Wow thanks so much for that, I really learned a lot about fonts and how layers work. I'll be honest, when I came to this site I just wanted someone to do that pic for me and then I was gonna leave but now I am entertaining the idea of sticking around for a bit longer and learning more. Here's my latest, tell me what you think.. any ideas for improvement would be appreciated.

Me thinks you have done a good job of adding Text to a picture.. now it is just a matter of playing with all the tools and gaining experience by Practicing Cubed... (be aware that photo manipulation/retouching is VERY addicting!)

Under the "Site Nav" button at the top of this page is a link to our "Tutorial" section where a lot of shared knowledge listed....

Another GREAT resource is available right within Photoshop.. pressing F1 or going to 'Help>Photoshop Help' while working in Photoshop will bring up the 'Adobe Help Center' which also has tutorials and explanations and uses for all the tools including excellent coverage about Layers and masks... and much, much more!!

Good Job!! Keep up the good work!!! Looking forward to seeing much more from you!!
