I just flipped through the TOC options (Index>Indexes and Tables>TOC
tab>Options button) and it seems that both Simple and Modern put an em
space between heading and page number. Once you generate a TOC, all the
styles will appear in the doc's style catalog, so you can modify the font,
margins, etc. that way (Format>Styles; the TOC entries are TOC 1, TOC 2,
etc.; select one, choose Modify, and away you go; just remember to add them
to the template or make sure your doc doesn't automatically update the
styles if you want to make sure your changes will be in place the next time
you open the doc) (if you need a quick lesson on templates, let me know;
they're very different in Frame and Word).

Good luck, and let me know if you need clarification.

Sometimes I feel like a dog
standin' on a tool box
in the back of a pickup truck
doin' 90 round a corner
just tryin' to hang on for dear life.
