In RFEM or RSTAB, can I define temperature loads for members that have, for example, 350 °C at the member start and 200 °C at the member end?


This is possible: For this, select the "Temperature" load distribution for the member load and then specify trapezoidal variable distribution over the length and height of the cross-section.
