I think I read somewhere that the GUI would not support that,  but
that was El Capitan-based information. I have yet to try to configure
the VPN manually, but was hoping someone would step up and tell me the
GUI works before I dig into non-GUI...

I can get IKEv2 with EAP (username and password) working trough the
GUI just fine. Does that not work for you? Or did you just try

As OSX apparently did not understand certificates before Sierra, what
kind of connection did you have before Sierra?
