With that, you have an identical gap, eg 0.5mm

I know that the 4D spring retainer screw is going to sit closer towards the shoe because its holding more weight down, the question is:
Will one version feel as if the gap is different to the other eg. the 4D feels like a 2D but with a 0.7mm gap.
Does that make sense??
Perfect sense
just remember with less weight it will feel that it has a quicker engagement the biggest difference that you will also feel with the same setting on either is that one will feel less aggressive than the other at shift points
as for the shoe are u talking about clutch shoe or centrifugal shoe there should be no difference on the retainer

Less weight, it will feel like it has a quicker engagement???

Clutches operate on centrifugal force... The more weight it has, the bigger the centrifugal force thus the quicker engagement it will have....

Or that is at least what I know...

quicker engagement but does not hit as hard since it has less weight very smooth very small difference but that's what I felt
