Adding the a ti puts the emphasis on the you. Just like including the in ¿Tú bebiste toda la leche?

No, it isn't, but often is there. It's one of those quirks of Spanish.

Nope, not really. Of course, I'm not fluent enough to tell you when exactly a native speaker would include it.

Again, I don't see the need for "a ti". Is just "te gusta" also acceptable?

Yes. The "a ti" is emphatic. It's also common enough that duo would be doing a disservice for not including it.
