There is a cookbook available [1] containing a lot of simple examples. As
PDFBox doesn't support to set the Text rendering mode directly, you have to do
it on your own. According to the PDF specs (9.3.1) the operator "Tr" is used to
set the text rendering mode:

"Tr : Set the text rendering mode, T(mode), to render, which shall be an 
integer. Initial value: 0."

You have to add the operator to the contentstream as raw command similar to the
sequence which can be found in PDPageContentStream#setLineCapStyle [2]

Please don't contact the developers directly. You should join the mail list [3] 
instead. I cc'ed my answer to the PSDFBox users mailing list.
