Is there an example of wrapping strings as
pulumi.Secret
in golang? Do we have to use ApplyT to get convert the output to the right type?

Can you elaborate on what you're trying to do?
You can use
pulumi.ToSecret(value)
to wrap a string as secret - https://www.pulumi.com/docs/intro/concepts/secrets/#programmatically-creating-secrets.

Yeah, a couple of things: 1. Pass a secret obtained from an environment variable into a cloudformation resource as a cloudformation stack parameter. Currently passing this straight through without letting pulumi know it's a secret, b/c the type for
Parameters
is
pulumi.StringMapInput
2. Passing that same secret into a aws.secretsversion secretstring, via something like the key-value pairs example here https://www.pulumi.com/docs/reference/pkg/aws/secretsmanager/secretversion/#key-value-pairs (We're migrating away from cloudformation and envvars, I swear 😅 )
It's not obvious if it is worth converting that envvar secret to a pulumi secret for either of those cases to begin with. We're not printing anything to stdout, but I would rather not have it accidentally leak in case of a panic/error

I'm not entirely sure I'm following your points, but here's an example that I think describes what you're wanting. Does this answer your question?

myVarSecret.(pulumi.StringOutput)
That's the missing piece of the puzzle that I was looking for!! Thank you
