You can add text to a pic with the "type" tool, it's the one that looks like a letter T. Not sure what you mean by "turn it into a stencil" though?
you could emboss the layer......dont ask me how though.....its not the sort of thing i use photoshop for!

Do you mean simplify the image so you can cut it out a la hoodride stencil?
