I am using gazebo depth kinect camera plugin to display my pointclouds. I was wondering if there is any ways that I can set the distance between points in the pointcloud itself. For example beam spacing is: 0.39 degree (horizontal) and 0.19 degree (vertical).

With the depth kinect camera plugin you can change: widht, height, FOV and some others. But you can try with other type of sensor, for example range sensor. This will generate the cloud but not the RGB data.
