A standard ESC cannot operate any gimbal motor as a gimbal motor.
You can spin it rapidly, but that's not what this thread is about. Gimbal motors have no hall sensors, note.
A 3-phase driver is needed to drive the motor, position feedback via encoder or IMU is needed, and control loop to drive the drivers amplitude/phase. You need to know a bit about field-oriented-control techniques really to see how this all works.
You can drive a gimbal motor open-loop via a 3-phase driver, but it will basically be hopeless having no position authority (ie be floppy as anything).
Unlike RC motors for props/traction a gimbal motor's windings are high resistance designed for sustained maximum current without needing aggressive cooling.
