I don't think you'd call what I did - "teaching my cat to walk on a leash" - but, I have had some experience - I'm sure others will post with better knowledge.
I mostly used a halter and leash when we were traveling with our cat to insure I wouldn't lose him.
There were other times I used it, but very few.
The only thing I remember about it is the the cat always walked with his back "hunched" down - like he had something he needed to go under
- this was because of the halter.
The halter and leash was/is good for some added safety - and sometimes I would tie him out so he could lay in the grass and sun - that was while I was sitting in a chair next to him. (My cat was kept inside otherwise.)
There's several kinds of halters for cats, don't get one for a dog -
