I want to create an image [jpg, png, doesn't matter] from shell but I don't have convert command. The image is very simple - white background with a medium-size black text in the middle. Is it possible?

Since you say you do not have the convert tool, install ImageMagick (this is where convert comes from). You'll certainly have it in your distro's repositories. As you mentioned the tool, I assume you already know how to create such image with it.
