You can add more than one content to the same WordFragment:

$footerWordFragment = new WordFragment($docx, 'defaultFooter');
$optionsLeft = array(
    'textAlign' => 'left',
$footerWordFragment->addText('Footer text', $optionsLeft);

$optionsRight = array(
    'textAlign' => 'right',
$footerWordFragment->addPageNumber('numerical', $optionsRight);

$docx->addFooter(array('default' => $footerWordFragment));

But to accomplish your task and get a correct vertical alignment for both contents (and more if needed), we recommend you to use a table:

$footerWordFragmentText = new WordFragment($docx, 'defaultFooter');
$optionsLeft = array(
    'textAlign' => 'left'
$footerWordFragmentText->addText('Footer text', $optionsLeft);

$footerWordFragmentPageNumber = new WordFragment($docx, 'defaultFooter');
$optionsRight = array(
    'textAlign' => 'right'
$footerWordFragmentPageNumber->addPageNumber('numerical', $optionsRight);

$valuesTable = array(

$paramsTable = array(
    'tableStyle' => 'LightListAccent1PHPDOCX',
    'tableAlign' => 'center',
    'columnWidths' => array(3000, 3000),

$footerWordFragmentTable = new WordFragment($docx, 'defaultFooter');
$footerWordFragmentTable->addTable($valuesTable, $paramsTable);

$docx->addFooter(array('default' => $footerWordFragmentTable));

Or you can use a custom template ( or import headers and footers from an external DOCX (
