Start by installing and activating the WP ShowHide plugin.

To hide the text in a post simply use the following shortcode:
[showhide type="post"]Text you want to hide[/showhide]
Changing the more and less links would require modifying the opening shortcode to the following:
[showhide type="post" more_text="Show more…" less_text="Show less…"]
