I would like to be able to customize a layer in the legend to match the text label to the symbology used. In ArcMap, I could do this by inserting a label like the one below in the Label section. 

<CLR Red= '145' Green= '232' Blue='255'>PPM 075 <ITA>(Not Committed)</ITA></CLR>

In the legend this is how it would appear:

If I use this in ArcGIS Pro 2.7, I get black lettering instead of the blue for this layer and can only remove the black by removing the tagged text also, the option to use italics is missing from the legend.

This is already possible using ArcGIS Pro.  The formatting for the text formatting tags is slightly different in ArcGIS Pro compared to ArcMap.  With your provided text formatting tags from ArcMap, I modified the code syntax to the following:  

<CLR red= "145" green= "232" blue="255">PPM 075<ITA>(Not Committed)</ITA></CLR>

and my legend formatted properly.  The key was lower case for the colors and a " vs a single ' that ArcMap uses.  Hope this helps!

This is fixed in ArcGIS Pro 2.9.  See Ideas in ArcGIS Pro 2.9 for a number of other ideas you can expect to see when you update.
