Well I tried gaping them but they are already gapped to .060

Should I install them like that?
Or is there a way to close the gap down ?

Make sure the gap is .054-.056 whatever you have to do. If you supercharge you'll usually have a tighter gap in the .030s somewhere. Gotta love a tight gap.

I think I found some oil on 1 spark plug on the drivers side , I can't really make it out .. It's just at the very bottom if you can see , a very small amount. What do you guys think?
It's not on the threads but right below them
It wasn't soaked , just had a small layer of some resedo

I'd pull that plug again in a few thousand miles and take a look at it. The electrode looks fine though.
