You can click a text box to select it, and then in Inspector -> Graphic, click Shadow. The shadow controls are then live and what you choose is applied to all text in the text box.
As Jerrold says, get the cursor showing inside the text box, go to the Fonts pane and click on the T (at the left of the red-edged oval in Jerrold's picture). Having that selected will cause the shadow controls in the Graphic pane to be live for whatever text you select in the text box. That way, you can select some text and apply some shadow settings. Then you could select some other text in that text box and apply different shadow settings.
You could try to effect shadow settings just using the other controls in the Fonts Panel, but they are too small and fiddly.

It is worth noting that if the text box has a background fill, selecting the textbox will only allow you to apply shadows to the box, not the text within it. If you select the text itself, however, you can tick the Shadow checkbox and apply a shadow to the text.
Also, someone has apparently decided that this is an iOS question (possibly because that is listed in the OP's profile) despite the fact that the topic clearly mentions Pages '09. If that is the case, none of these controls exists on the iDevice, so the style must be created on a computer and imported to the iDevice where Copy Style and Paste Style can be used to transfer it to other text.
