I don't know if this exactly answers your question, but you can change
between text and image output in the imaxima buffer with
display2d:true $ /* change to 2d text output */
display2d:imaxima $ /* image output */
Since Maxima keeps its output in the variables %o1, etc, you can toggle
between the two display modes and (re)print output as text as need be.
It would be pretty easy to write a convenience function in emacs lisp to
do this, and bind it to a key combination.
