Try StackGraphics:

In[47]:= Needs["Graphics`Graphics3D`"]

In[48]:= ?StackGraphics

StackGraphics[{g1, g2, ...}] generates a Graphics3D object
to a "stack" of two-dimensional graphics objects.

Gaussian pulse as an example:

In[49]:= f[x_, y_] := Exp[-(x-y)^2/4]

The following function defines 2D sections and labels them:

In[50]:= section[y_] := Show[Plot[ f[x,y], {x, -10, 15}, 
                        PlotRange -> All, DisplayFunction->Identity],
                        Graphics[Text["y = "<> ToString @ y,{17, 0}]],

StackGraphics displays corresponding to different y sections together:

In[51]:= Show[
             	StackGraphics[Table[section[y], {y,0,10,2}]], 
	             PlotRange -> All, BoxRatios -> {1,1,0.5},Boxed -> False,
             	Axes -> {Automatic, None, Automatic},
             	AxesLabel -> {"x ","","f"},
             	DisplayFunction -> $DisplayFunction]

Out[52]= -Graphics3D-
