Open it in photoshop and use the Text tool (toolbar), click in the picture where you want the text and start typing. Then go to edit -> free transform to resize, move etc. the text as you like. If you save it as PSD, you can later remove the text, if you save as JPG or similar, the text will be there forever.

so my next question is how can i repeat this same thing on multiple photos. Is there a way i can copy and paste this on multiple pics? I want a name written on the bottom corner of all the photos..... how do i do this?

Create an action in Photoshop and play the action on each photo. You may even be able to run the action on a folder full of photos.
