Is there an effect for flickering/shimmering text? Basically I am trying to animate text on starry night sky, and I want the texts' shimmering to resemble that of stars. I spend half an hour on Youtube searching, but I haven't found one.

You might try animating some fractal noise in a nested comp, and using it as a luma matte for the text layer.

Using the same nested comp as a displacement map for the text layer could make it look pretty cool, too.

To affect the edges you could use Roughen Edges with animation. A animated glow can add to it.
