If you don't want a page number then you shouldn't use the HeaderFooter (Phrase, Phrase) constructor. Use the HeaderFooter (Phrase, boolean) constructor and pass false for the boolean.

Footers really aren't meant for complicated objects like tables, so I don't think this is possible.

I have a table in the header, so i guess it's also possible in the footer.
