Is there a way to track the stress value at a specific gauss point during the analysis?
"eleResponse" command put all the values in a file. Is there a way to get the values directly?

You can use ElementRecorder with the parameter 'stresses' (or 'stress' for Brick8n).
That will give you all the gauss points for one brick. The Brick8n will also give you the corresponding gauss point locations with the parameter 'gausspoint'. In the code, it looks like the parameter for Bbar brick is 'integrPoint'.
So check the documentation and the source code (function setResponse) to see what's possible.
Please let me know, I've used Brick8n but I'd like to know about the other bricks!
