Any content not written specifically for the new game is not useable in the new game. Totally leaving aside White Wolf's desire to sell you new/more books, the different vampire types don't work the same way in Requiem as they did in Masquerade, and a lot of clans disappeared entirely. If you want to find options for a Gangrel character, I would recommend ...
There's lots of options! Some of them are only good for your fellow vampires and some of them are good for both vampires and mortals. Let's discuss the latter first: Vampires and Mortals The Intimidate skill is an obvious buy, but so is the Presence ability score - Presence measure's your character's effect on a room or group of people based on a loose ...
I don't have experience with Requiem. But I have a big load of experience with Masquerade, and general advice constructing a chronicle must be the same. First idea There are a lot of approaches building a chronicle, but they always start the same way: a simple idea.

As an answer to your particular circumstance, the list of what books can and cannot be used in the MES (Mind's Eye Society, formerly the Camarilla Fan Club) live-action chronicle is available in the Universal and Requiem Addenda. You can find the new Addenda on this page.

In the Universal document, it says, U.VIII.E.3: Retainers can have lesser templates specific to the character's venue (e.g. ghouls in Requiem, sleepwalker in Awakening, etc.) at Low Approval and supernatural templates at High Approval. U.VIII.E.4: Retainers cannot be any kind ...
I don't think the Mind Eye Society would allow such house rule. If you were playing a regular game, technically, you could pick the merits the Storyteller allows you. So, if you come up with an explanation of why your character have those traits, he could allow them. In this concrete case it's difficult because they are based on the Masquerade Gangrel ...
In my core book, starting at page 17 they have a list of inspirations/sources for Requiem and it's fairly extensive. If you watch/read even a smidgen of the titles listed, I'm sure that the ideas will start pinballing around. Without more information about your table and your own ST style I can't really give you much more than that.
