It can be done with live text. When you add a new fill in the Appearance panel, the default is black. You need to click on the black to change it to a gradient. Top: standard black text, Middle: no fill, Bottom: gradient fill added in the Appearance panel.

Yes you can.

Give the text a fill and stroke of none.

Go to the Appearance panel and add a new fill and use a gradient for this fill.

What the OP may be missing is that one has to select the entire text object, as opposed to selecting the text inside it,

You used the Text tool to select the text.

Use the Selection arrow tool (V) to click on the text object.
