Gloves/no gloves really depends on the person and the ambient temperature/humidity. Some people just naturally sweat more, or have oily skin or whatever. I wear basic small-sized cotton gloves when I load film, handle negatives etc. The cotton is thin enough so you don't lose any manual dexterity. Other people don't need gloves at all.
I also wear cotton gloves when loading film in a changing bag (or tent). Only with roll film, by the way. I have no issues with sheet film loading / unloading or loading of sheet film into a daylight tank.

You will be able to do it. It is just a matter of how fast you can do it...

Also, remember that you can always dump the film into the can, close the lid and take your arms out of the bag. Just remember to put the film in a light tight state before taking your arms out of the bag.
