I think WSL doesn't connect natively to the graphics hardware yet, so I don't think there's a ton you can do.

I got very low FPS, UI lag, and weird/bad visuals when I tried Gazebo on WSL as well.

I installed ROS Melodic and Gazebo 9 natively on Windows and that works fine. Also installed Gazebo 11 standalone via conda as discussed here:

Haven't tested the conda install thoroughly yet, but Gazebo definitely runs with good performance. I had some graphics glitches using it with Noetic but it may have something to do with the robot description packages I'm using.

You might see if you can set up to install and run Gazebo natively and run the rest of your non-graphical stuff on WSL.
