How are you drawing it? Is it all in one dxDrawText or multiple ones? As for how to use interpolateBetween, it's thoroughly explained on the wiki how to use it. You just gotta read it and try it a few times and you'll get the hang of it.

interpolateBetween is for 3D drawn objects. What you're requesting with scrolling text could be done by first rendering to a large target, then scrolling through the target using dxDrawImageSection to only display a part of the render target at a time. I personally made a scrolling billboard a long time ago. I used this exact function, but the 3D variant so it displayed on a billboard ingame. I then just did a timer with real time drawing to change what part displayed.

Just because it has parameters for a Z-axis doesn't necessarily mean it's "meant" for 3D objects, it works perfectly fine for 2D animations. You're absolutely right though; using a render target probably is a better alternative. :)
