    Hello, i'm new to Hammer and was wondering if there was a way to make movable, sizable text. I'm currently making a map with a few teleports and i want to label them.

    There's two ways. The first way is to use a point_message, which will make a floating label. It's not very professional, but it's quick.

    The alternative is to make your own custom material. It's more time consuming, but the results are much more professional. Material creation is pretty difficult the first time around, so if you've got any questions on that, feel free to ask.
