Plug gap is not hyper-critical. Too close is usually worse than too wide.
If you set the gap at .035 and the recommended gap is .025, it'll still run. Or set at .035 and recommended is .045.
We're talking about the thickness of 2-3sheets of paper difference.

You've got an air leak somewhere. Running better with the choke closed is the clue. Air is entering somewhere else and by closing the choke you are basically adjusting the air/fuel ratio to be more correct.
With a combustible carb spray and red nozzle pipe, you can lightly spray around the carb as the engine runs and see where the running changes and that's your leak point. Keep the spray away from the carb inlet so you don't get misled.
The carb could also have gunked up gas deposits. Clean the carb also.
Re-check it.

You change the oil after used for a certain period of time. If not used often you do not change the oil as often as in a car. The manual you have will give you so called recommended intervals which in most cases are a tad too often.

Spray starting fluid into the engine air intake and see if that starts it, if that does then you have dried fuel clogging up the works.
