Hello Grzegorz Staniak:

You asked:

As far as i understood your questions you want to have the gradient in the 
textgrame. This is no problem. Just look in the properties under colors. If 
you just want to color the text with gradients i think you will have to 
convert it to curves and this is a oneway operation. 

For quetion 2: if you have made the subtitles in many textframes you could 
group them. If not you coul manipulate the space between the lines in your 
style sheet.

But i am shure, that i dont know everything.
