  1. I would like to run a GF Form in a WP Widget (Text),
    something like this:

    <div class="login-sec">
    [gravityform id="5"]
    </div>

  2. Is there a reason you aren't using the Gravity Forms Widget?

    Add this to your functions.php. Then Shortcodes should work in Widgets:

    add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');
