To REALLY test it for capacitance and leakage you need an actual capacitor tester. An old fashioned analog ohm meter can tell you if its bad (like its shorted out) but even if it passes, that dont mean its good under actual operating conditions. To steady state DC it should read an open circuit (once charged) and if it reads a short its BAD and will kill the spark.
Yes different vehicles can use different values of condensors and its best to get the right one. It can still spark, albeit weak, if theres no condensor at all and the points would burn up sooner, but again if its a dead short theres no spark.
