Hi.

I would like to have information about thermal transfer printers or 
label printers that can be used with a microcontroller. To which I can 
send information from a microcontroller.

I would also like to know if I can use a common thermal printer to print 
adhesive labels.
I found this
https://www.adafruit.com/product/597
but I dont know if it can be used to print thermal label roll. Like 
this:

Well, the adafruit printer only prints on 2.25" inch (57mm) wide thermal 
rolls while your desired labels are 100mm in width.
So the answer is no, adafruit cannot print your labels, even if the 
technology would be the right one (thermal transfer).

Look for Zebra printers on ebay. Many of them have serial or parallel 
interfaces, and it is no problem to use a uC to send data to them. The 
printer command codes are documented, and they can produce barcodes 
internally.

They are not exactly cheap, though.
