Google's feedburner has BuzzBoost that will do this for you if you control the feed.

Pulling the RSS feed onto a page would only show what is contained in the feed. If it's just a link, then all you would see on the page is the link. If there is a full feed that contains the entire article then you would see that content.
I use SimplePie's core for a (non-WP) RSS fed site and it works as advertised, and from my experience the "plugin" does little more than create a hook -- you could actually just use the core and skip the plugin if you have the skills to set it up.
