Unfortunately as of yet, EC2 doesn't support IPv6. API Gateway can't help you here. The IPv6 support for ELB is really designed as a workaround. See the forum for more info.
With regards to your packets being sniffed, I think you don't need to worry about it. Once your packets are being routed inside your VPC they can't be sniffed from the outside or by any other VPC user. I'm sure if some engineer at AWS really wanted to (as they own the infrastructure), they could sniff your packets, but it would operate outside the assurances of security and privacy they advertise. I think it's ok not to worry about encrypting packets once inside your VPC, and I believe most VPC users (including myself) do not go to these lengths.
