I believe Allegro includes functionality for printing text; I would start there (check the Allegro documentation for details).

Also, as far as search terms go, what you're looking for is usually referred to as a GUI (graphical user interface). The term 'dialog box' can indeed refer to an in-game GUI control, but is also often used to refer to a system-level notification or a separate interactive window in a multi-window app (which isn't what you're looking for here, I don't think).
