I was wondering whether anyone could suggest a way/expression/plugin/preset to change text characters from one to another. I know you can change the source text with keyframes, but I need them t morph into each other, and that usually involves making different layers. Any chance to do it all in one layer?

You need to create masks or shapes of the characters you want to morph(you can do that simply by right clicking on the text layer and selecting create shapes from text). Then you have to copy and paste one mask or shape path keyframe at a time,from one character to the other. The process involves a lot of tweaking after this to create smooth motion.
