It is, it's called a "flutter" a lot of the time, although I've also seen it called a "gurgle". Can't really help you much with the execution though, I'm not a whammy bar kind of guy.

I would suggest that you're finding it hard because it's new and different to what you were doing before and that it has relatively little to do with the thickness of the neck you're playing on.

Literally the first thing I said was a change of string gauge.

You went from a 10-42 set to a 10-46 set, the problem is solved, and you're saying I'm wrong?

Ok, sure.

10-42 is a weird set of gauges, standard 10-sets are a 10-46, no wonder the low strings are loose. Try at least a 10-46 set, if not a 10-52.
