What is the problem with rasterizing the text layer then applying the brush? Im not sure if I quite understand what you want to do here.......but, arent you just wanting to take a custom brush and erasing some of the text with it to give a torn effect?

If you need to apply brushes to the text in a different colour, control-click the text layer after rasterization, layer > add layer mask > reveal selection. Then you can paint all over and it will only show in text area.
