What is the purpose of the prologue in The Great Gatsby?

It gives us insight into the character of Nick Carraway. Knowing the background of the narrator creates a sense of trust and this then makes us believe more of what he will tell us later on in the novel. It also gives reasons for some of his judgments and actions he makes/does later on in the story. Without a prologue the story would jump too quickly and the prologue is instrumental in providing us with reasons, easing us into the story of the 'Great Gatsby'.

Can the text in the prologue also appear in the main body of the novel?

There is no reason why it shouldn't. Maybe the prologue contains the essence of the novel, some small morsel of insight that might whet the literary appetite of a new reader. Then the novel can precede, maybe even from some point chronologically earlier than the time setting of the prologue. As the storyline develops it gradually gets closer to the moments that were epitomised in the prologue. Maybe the prologue could be repeated at that point, and the reader will then more fully grasp the significance of the thoughts expressed in the prologue. After all, a prologue is just a preliminary narrative, speech or poem. Doubtless, with some novels, it would be ideal to introduce it again, later, in context, where the poignancy of the prologue will be more fully understood and appreciated. One writing tutor says, of a prologue, that it can be "... a scene taken directly from the book - a few paragraphs inserted only to make us keep reading." The decision whether 'to prologue, or not to prologue' is the author's to make, who will also decide the form of the prologue if one is used. Those wishing to develop their writing skills may wish to make a wide study of novels with prologues, then decide for themselves what advantages there may be in having a prologue. With a broader spectrum of knowledge the author can then make an informed choice regarding prefacing their own novel(s) with a suitable prologue, or not!
