Gacha items are always no copy. Some are mod and some no mod and there are no refunds. Double items can be sold at yardsales - just type that in the search and you'll see tons. 

 

IMO yardsales are best for when you want to have the whole collection, there are some designers that really make a huge effort and create wonderfull collections and I used to spend a lot of money to get all items from the gacha machine. Now I just visit yardsales and buy exactly what I need.

"Gacha" is a term borrowed from Real Life.  It comes from a popular feature of Japanese social games.  See this link for an explanation of Real Life Gacha: http://www.serkantoto.com/2012/02/21/gacha-social-games/

In Second Life, a Gacha machine is a sort of a cross between a regular vendor and a lottery.

A Gacha machine is sort of like a gumball machine.  You pay it, and it will give you ONE item from its contents, selected at random.  I'm not sure what you mean by "the high price"...most Gacha machines charge a much lower price than you would pay for the item normally, because of the element of chance involved.

The items awarded can vary in their permissions.  Most SL items are sold as Modify, Transfer, No Copy, although items often given as gifts, like jewelry, may be No Transfer, Copy.  In Gacha machines, the permissions are nearly always No Copy, Transfer...because a lot of people like to try to resell unwanted prizes.  The permissions of any item (whether you buy it in a Gacha machine or not) are set by the creator.

Almost all items in Second Life are sold with a No Refund policy.
