Basically title says it all. There will be book and movie titles and I need non-editors/non-AE folks to be able to just change those themselves when using mogrts in Premier. So far I can only get it to change the entire text.

Adobe have posted in 2019 saying they no this is a feature people want. https://community.adobe.com/t5/after-effects/essential-graphics-custom-font-style-italic-or-regular-or-bold-within-a-paragraph/td-p/10199219?page=1
I think in the meantime, you’ll have to provide different text layers for the different formatting.
You could probably use a form of markup to get users to denote italics:
e.g. “word [i]italic_word word ” or “word *italic_word word”
then use an expression to break up the text by these tags, but it feels a bit overkill and you’ll end up offering more support to people who don’t understand compared to just having two text boxes labeled: Book Title and Studio/Director etc…

Depending on the font, you can get away with faux italics and faux bolds which can be fakes with text-animator ranges.
See this thread where I built a proof of concept ‘html’ parser so you editors could just type html-style < i > or < b > or < red > or whatever tags <red style=””><red style=””>etc. around the words they want changed.</red></red>
