The conversion can be handled by a number of graphics tools; if you
don't already have one, you can use IrfanView (on Windows) or

As for an example of using pstricks to place the text, unfortunately I
don't have one readily available -- it's something I've done only once
or twice, and never recently. At any rate, as I recall it involves
importing the EPS file into a pspicture environment, then placing text
using \rput.

Perhaps somebody else can provide a small example?
