I have a logo type that is originally png file: Pixaleted and poor quality. Brought it into photoshop and increase ppi to 300 saved out in jpeg. Quality still not good. (see attachment). 

Placed jpeg into illustrator and tried using image trace but results of strokes & curves looks bloated (see attachment). 

If anyone has special tip in sharping text that would be super!  

Thanks!

Unless you put in the effort to manually rebuild the type or have the font on your system to just re-type the text than there is really not much you can do here.

sntm,

 

In addition to what Mylenium siad, increasing PPI in PS only makes the shape woollier.

 

In this case you can rebuild using the locked image (original or woollier) and fitting the right combination of (parts of) rectangles and circles to get more or less the same appearance.

 

And you can look for the/a similar font.

 

You can try the Adobe Fonts site (upload an image, clicking to the right in the search box, to find the same or similar) and have immediate access to your find(s),

or you can try the following font finder sites,
