I managed to make the drop shadow, and I think I know how to get the ~1px bright outline/stroke, but how would you do this dark/bright effect around the edge and across the hole path?

By using mnxd's solution as a base, you can make this really manageable by using the
Add New Fillfrom the palette options or click the
duplicate selected itembutton:
previewoption will allow you to get your bearings for an appropriate offset.
Big pro of this method is that, once done, you can drag your object into the
Graphic Styles palette to make the effect a style you can apply to any object.
