Most modern spark plug makers pre-gap the plug at the factory. As long as you have the correct spark plugs for your vehicle they won't need gapping.
Gap is listed as 0.044 inch, (1.1mm).

SOURCE: replacing spark plugs on 2007 jeep compass

The black engine cover just pops into place. Gently use both hands and place them under the front edge of the cover. Lift up and reach to the right rear corner of the cover and pop it up off the grommet stem. Do the same to the left rear. The plugs are on the REAR of the engine-the injectors on the front. Use the torx driver to remove the plug caps screw and gently twist a little and pull upwards. The plugs is a ways down. Make sue you use a good spark plug socket (the one with the rubber insert) that will grip the plug and not drop it. At a minimum use platinum tipped plugs. I touched the new ones up with some anti-seize lube on the threads and put a dab of die-electic grease in the plug wire tubes.

I need to replace the spark plug of my 2007 Jeep Compass, 2.4 engine, FWD. What's the size of the gap? How hard to tight it, the number of ft-lb, when install it? Do I need to apply anti-seize lube?...

You might want to use the gapless plugs! Although they are a little more expensive, they have given me better gas mileage and also don't foul up.

What type of spark plugs are oem for the jeep compass also the dealer said they need to flash the computer after replacing them

RC12MC-4 is the original Champion spark plug installed in your engine. As for flashing the PCM (computer), I have never heard of this procedure required after a simple spark plug replacement. Unless there is another reason for the flashing, it does not make a bit of sense to have this done.
