You can use PlotStyle, Text labels, and Legends.  In a bit of overkill I have 
used all of these in this example

Needs["Graphics`Colors`"];
Needs["Graphics`Legend`"];

f[x_] := Sin[x];
g[x_] := Cos[x];

Plot[{f[x], g[x]}, {x, 0, 2Pi}, 
    
PlotStyle -> {{Red}, {Blue, AbsoluteDashing[{5,5}]}},
PlotLegend -> {ToString[f[x]], ToString[g[x]]},
Epilog -> {Text[ToString[f[x]], {2.4, f[2.4]}, {-1,-1}],
Text[ToString[g[x]], {5, g[5]}, {1, -1}]}];
