The simplest thing would be to place the graphic and the caption one
aboe the other in a one-column, two-row GridBox.

here is an example:

pl=Plot[x^2, {x, -3, 3},DisplayFunction->Identity];

     GridBox[{{"Column I", "Column II"}, {"Row1", "Code1"},
        {"Row2", "Code2"}}, ColumnAlignments -> {Right, Left}]
     ], "Text"];
