Hello world,
It's my first time to experiment in aftereffects, I seem like to stuck on the basic settings.
Firstly, why there's no animate button on the text layer in timeline?
Secondly, why there's no numeric values accompany with the start, end and offset in opacity?

Can you upload a screenshot of what your timeline looks like?

You are going to be a very sad person until you learn the basics of After Effects. If you try learning it just by farting around with it, the odds of AE success are probably less than 1%. A knowledge of the AE basics also includes learning its own arcane terminology; to wit, there's no such thing as an "animate" button. You'll only confuse the people trying to help you if you don't learn the lingo.
