I want to display some text information in RViz GUI, but not associated to specific point but rather always visible to the user. Is it possible to to render text at a fixed position in view, or maybe display it in some other way?

You should be able to do this with the jsk_rviz_plugins package.

Specifically, the overlay_text plugin.

Screenshot from their documentation:
