I use specific version ROS, indigo, and I see in the tutorial that it is better off working with gazebo2.

But it seems gazebo2 lack some functionalities compared to higher verison, like 7

I see the tutorial mentions gz tool tons of time, for example:

gz topic -e /gazebo/default/box/link/my_contact

How can I get around this command using gazebo2? It seems the tutorial version is 7+.

Sorry, I am new here, not familiar. thanks for your attention.

On gazebo 2 and earlier, there is a gztopic command that provides this functionality. There are also the commands: gzstats, gzsdf, gzlog, and gzfactory (list of executable commands in CMakeLists.txt as of 2.2.3).
