Assume I have an existing well-encoded MP4 video WITHOUT subtitles.

Now I want to add the text "foobar testtext" with fontsize=18 and fontfamily Verdana into video beginning at 1min23sec and ending at 3min44sec centralized 30 pixels above lower border.

How can I most easily achieve this with Avidemux?

I possible/necessary the text could be put fix encoded into video and not only as traditional subtitle.

You need software like Aegisub to generate a traditional subtitle file (.ass, .ssa, .srt) for this purpose. Avidemux can only be used to hardcode these subtitles into video.
