I don't know about doing this in general, but for specific plots, you
could use Epilog to explcitly set a label on the left hand side of the
graph. As an example, evaluate the following

Plot[f^2, {f,0,10}, Epilog->[Text["Quadratic", Scaled[{0, 1}], {-1,-2}],

using Scaled[{0,1}] always indicates the top left corner of the graph,
and an offset of {-1, -2} in the Text command ensures that the left hand
side of the text is a little above the left hand corner of the graph.

You could use a similar command for your question about inserting text
lines in a graphics. You'd have to experiment a little with the
coordinates that give the best results, but something like the following
could work

Show[GraphicsArray[{{g1,  g2},{ g3,  g4}}, GraphicsSpacing->0.3],
Epilog->{Text["row1", Scaled[{0.5, 0.5}]], Text["row2", Scaled[{0.5,
0}]]}, PlotRange->All]

where g1, g2, g3, ang g4 are plots or figures.

Hope this helps.
