There is a feature that will expand text horizontally, in Format, Font,
character spacing....expanded, condensed. However, this only seems to affect
the characters horizontally. Is there one that will expand the characters
vertically?

I think your only option is a bigger font. CTRL+Shift will increase the
size of selected text.

Increase the font size and then condense them horizontally, or else
use Word Art.

On the Character Spacing tab of Format | Font, use the scaling command.
Although the command scales text horizontally, you can choose a larger font
size (taller) and then scale the font to less than 100% to get the effect of
taller, narrower text.
