I'm afraid rotating text in RadRichTextBox is not possible at this point.
Like you mentioned, one possible solution is to place an InlineUIContainer which contains a rotated element, but preserving it to DOCX would not be possible. Unfortunately, I'm unable to suggest another approach for achieving the desired result.
