Try this plug-in:

Create your text, make a box that is sheared the same way you want the text deformed, and then use conform to box to shear the text.

Hmmm. I'm not sure on that one. For things like that, I usually do the wireframe in Corel Draw then import it into AC3D as a DXF or TTF as Corel has some pretty nice text tools.
