AE's API doesn't offer any text generating funcitons for the render buffer. (as opposed to the UI buffer where there's the drawbot suite)
you can however, fill the render buffer using whatever method you'd like. i personally generate text for the render buffer using a native OS buffer with the OS text tools, then copying it's content back to AE's render buffer.
