Is there a way for me to display a label over the layer on the legend ? I am familiar with the legend and know how to use it.

I have a road layer here and I have roads  showed their road labels on the Layout but I am not sure HOW to insert the labels with the road for the legend ?  Do I need to create a picture and then insert it in the legend ?

Convert your legend to a graphic and then add graphic shapes and text over the graphic legend.  Not exactly the most elegant way to do it, but it will work.

There isn't an easy out of the box solution for this. As a workaround you could add a graphic or picture on top of the legend in the layout. The added graphic or picture won't be dynamic, so if the legend changes or is moved the graphic won't update with it.
