First of all, welcome to Scribus!

You can turn a shape into a text frame or an image frame. CTRL-click on 
it will get you a contextual menu. There you can Convert to > Text or 
Image frame. Once this is done, using the same contextual menu you can 
now Get Text (+ other options).

> [2] Is there a way to align text vertically in the text box that contains it?

There is no automatic way (feature not implemented yet). But can 
determine the space between the text frame and the text in the 
Properties palette > Shape > Distance to text.
