I am new to Cinema 4D and know nearly nothing about it. So I came across a situation that I have an American Football ball, and want to add a title on its surface . . . I did try wrap tool, but to add with it to the surface is very difficult and I think to have it exactly on the ball is nearly impossible with that. So can you tell me what other easier options I can choose to add my text to its surface.

As Brian was alluding to, the easiest way would be to use a texture as a decal to place the text on the football. In Photoshop, or another graphics program, make simple white text on a black background, save it as a PNG, and use that image as a Texture in the alpha channel of another material applied to a selected area on your football.
Google something like "applying a decal in C4D" to find some tutorials.
