In LThird you can use the Auto Condense option:

Note that it only adjusts the text if it is too long.

To do this with other than LThird is dependend on how do you want to use that text.  On a 3D object?

Are there any module to use can help on this case?

for example if we need to multi line texts to fixed size rectangle and have option to warp or cut the text also maybe change the size of fitted texts? 

This can help when creating general to use lower thirds for operators .

To justify long text make sure to set Text Alignment to Justified (3) and Word Wrapping to Wrap (0) in the Text Format module’s Pin Values. Furthermore, switch Fixed Width to On in the Text Image module’s Pin Values.
It will look something like this:

Set Fixed Width and Fixed Height to On in Text Image. After that the Image Size will be the bounding box.

Additionally you can create a margin with Adjust Auto Size. (Despite the name it works in fixed and not fixed mode as well)

You can move the text inside the box with AdjustPosition which makes sense usually if you have a margin.

Not all parameters are exposed on LThird_Text, since it is for special purpose.
But feel free to open the compound up, and customize to your needs. Inside you'll find the Text Image module along its all possible parameters.

Regarding 3D, the Text Extrusion module has Bounds and Auto Bounds properties which has the same functionality.
