The FCL provides very similar functions for component streaming as Delphis VCL.
An example how to stream a TForm to a text file (.lfm/.dfm) can be found in main.pp function CreateLFM.
Creating a component from a text works just the other way. Convert the text to a binary stream and use a TReader.

Don't know if there is a doc about this topic.
