Work with text strings blank spaces

Is it possible to add tabs in a text or add a number of spaces, not two spaces or three, but a number that represents a separation between letters? Since I can calculate the width of the letters I would like to add a width of space I specify.
this is test 1      2 there are 5 spaces between 1 and 2 but I want them to be separated by 6.5 spaces.

Something like this?

This is text one/6.5/this is text two/8/this is text three

So you use / to split the text into a list so it looks like this:

Item 0: This is text one
Item 1: 6.5 is the value of spaces
Item 2: This is text two
Item 3: 8 is the value of spaces.
Item 4: this is item three

That is not what I am saying.
what I say is each word has a size the space " " measures 5.5 the letter A measures 7.5 etc. what I say is that between two letters if I leave a space the distance is 5.5 but instead of being 5.5 the distance is for example 6.5 and not 5.5 that equals even space " ". I'm just asking if it's possible.

It is, you will have to break your text in multiple blocks and position each on accordingly, with the desired space between them. You can achieve that with lists.
