If you want to recite Quran as Tilawah تلاوة our Tarteel ترتيل as Allah says in Quran : ورتِّل القران ترتيلا you must recite with your tongue and lips. Even if you want to recite Quran as Qira'ah قراءة as Allah says فاقرؤا ما تيسر من القران٬which is less degree than Tilawah, you need to use your tongue and lips. If you just look at the Quranic text with out using your tongue and lips, it will not be called reciting (Neither Tilawah nor Qira'ah) but just looking at the Quranic text, which is also good but it is lower than both degrees of reciting.

Du'a can be recited in any way as far as your heart is supplicating to Allah (SWT) and not just looking at the text.
