What size socket for spark plug? And I can just use any normal socket? Anything about the spark plug gap? I shouldn’t have to mess with the spark plug gap right? Not sure if I can find the spark plug gap measure tool

Should be 5/8 socket. A spark plug socket has a "rubber insert" to support the ceramic part of the plug and center it in the socket so it guides the plug in straight. The insert also stops the plug from falling out of the socket and falling into the "forbidden zone".
Any auto parts store with have a cheap Gap tool. Check your factory specs for gap, don't trust what comes out of the box, its always good to double check the Pre-Gap set by the plug company.

What should the spark plugs be gapped at? Mines a 04 gallardo

I believe you're in The States ? .032 should be correct. If you have your shop manual, double check it but that should be correct.
