I want to highlight part of a text description in a gallery as a URL link. Is there a workaround?

There isn't a feature but you should be able to add a link by manually adding the HTML. I should probably set your expectations by saying that this is an unsupported workaround so could stop working in the future if Squarespace decided to block the HTML.

I loved your "About" section by the way. It made me smile 🙂.

Is it possible to link to an external page as well?

Yes, sure. Here are some examples:

<a href="https://example.com">External site</a>
<a href="mailto:m.bluth@example.com">Email link</a>
<a href="tel:+123456789">Phone link</a>

This guide explains all the options: The Anchor element.
