Say I want to see how well the visual localization on a robot would do during the night or at darker places given different lights I attach to the robot. Would Gazebo be sufficient simulation tool for that? Would it be possible to simulate dark place, the robot light and the camera in a way, that the camera would get realistic pictures?

In general I think it depends on how realistic you need things to look. You certainly have some control over lighting conditions.

I've been doing similar tests with Gazebo 9 and the only way I found to do it with Gazebo Rendering is using the GUI.

I didn't check in detail but for some reason using System or Visual plugins, the results were not the expected. This means, with the GUI I could see the whole environment darker but the robot camera wasn't detecting any change.
