Yes, there are probably several ways to accomplish your objectives.  
First, you need to edit the style definition for Output. The option  
that controls the spacing above and below (as well as left and right)  
is called CellMargins. And the option for setting a background color  
is called Background. These are the options you will need to work  
with. There may be other options that can assist you. But CellMargins  
and Background are the basic building blocks.
