The default behavior is caused by the following option in the stylesheet

CellFrameLabels->{{None, None}, {
           Cell[TextData[ {"Figure ", CounterBox[ "NumberedFigure"]}],
            FontWeight -> "Bold"], None}}

If you want each figure to have different text, then you must apply a 
different option to each cell. For example,

CellFrameLabels->{{None, None}, {
           Cell[TextData[ {"Figure ", CounterBox[ "NumberedFigure"],
           "-- This figure is different."}],
            FontWeight -> "Bold"], None}}

This can be set with the Option Inspector (Cell Options/Cell Frame 
Options/Cell FrameLabels).

For the page of the current cell, the page number is given by 
CounterBox["Page"]. For a different cell it is CounterBox["Page", "tag"] 
where "tag" is the CellTag for that cell. There is a menu that pastes these 
CounterBoxes (Input/Create Automatic Numbering object).
