Check for the keypress, when key is return then make textbox.visible property to false.

private void textBox1_KeyPress(object sender, KeyPressEventArgs e)
            if (e.KeyChar == (char)13)
                textBox1.Visible = false;

To Display text on picture box check this http://www.fordevs.com/2009/02/convert-text-to-image-using-c.html

Try this,

private void pictureBox1_Paint(object sender, PaintEventArgs e)
            Font myfont = new Font("Arial", 14);
            e.Graphics.DrawString("Hello", myfont, Brushes.Green,new PointF());

Do you mean something like this? (Coords of Location are not correct)

public partial class Form1 : Form
        private TextBox PTB
        public Form1()

        private void pictureBox1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            PTB = new TextBox();
            PTB.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(56, 193);
            PTB.Name = "textBox1";
            PTB.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(100, 20);
