I have an image, with a white background and text in the middle, it's set up to the point where the whole thing is an image.  I  need to cut some off the top and bottom of the image to make it smaller, without touching the text itself, is there a way I can chop off just sections of an image, or no, if so how?

Hard to know without seeing the image exactly what you can and can't do with it. Since you say 'image', we'll assume it's not a layered .psd file.

One option is to copy the text to a new psd, remove the text from the image, re-size the image, then copy the text back to it.  The 'lasso' option lets you remove irregular sections of an image.  If the text actually overlays part of the image, you have a tedious editing job ahead but the 'magic wand' might be useful to you in removing parts ... as I say, hard to tell without seeing the image.
Legend has it that reading the manual never killed anyone.

yes, hard to know without seeing the picture, so maybe i'm oversimplifying the problem - but can't you just crop it?
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)
