create your text using the text option under shapes in 3ds max (i am assuming you are using 3ds max ). then convert your text shape to editable poly. cleanup the geometry if there are any unwanted vertices/ edges/ faces etc. model the cylinders & place them where they need to be as in your image. then use boolean. should work. but you might have to do a lot of cleaning up afterwards. Also i suggest you add enough edge loops on your text model before the Boolean so you dont have to do it later as that will take a lot of time.

You could probably get away with using an opacity map and a normal map for the bump or displacement. If you're going to be rendering at that distance this would be the most efficient option.
