Was the file originally created in Fireworks? An actual Fireworks PNG is
a modified version of the PNG format. Standard PNG files are flat. So if
this file was not saved as a Fireworks PNG to begin with, then the text
has been rasterized, which means it's just a bitmap and you can't edit
it as text.

If you provide a link to the file, we may have other suggestions, but at
the moment, it looks like you will have to either start a new file or at
the very least, add the text again within Fireworks. Leave the original
flattened text visible while you're working so you can match things up,
then hide it when you export the file.
