    The Theme that you're using has slightly old markup, and does not use the WordPress comment_form() function. If it did, adding text above the comment field would be a simple matter of adding something like this to your functions.php file:

    function mytheme_comment_form_precomment_text() { ?>
    
         <p>Text to add above comment field goes here.<?p>
    
    <?php }
    add_action( 'comment_form_after_fields' , 'mytheme_comment_form_precomment_text' );

    However, since your Theme adds the comment reply form markup itself, you'll have to go into the markup, and add the text yourself, accordingly.

    Whatever you do, make sure that any changes are made in a Child Theme, and not in the Theme itself.
