The beamforming antenna will be able to easily adjust for this difference, there is no need to angle it.
Around 20 degree angle will work fine vertically.

Re: RB usb port to RJ (serial )

All MikroTik devices with data USB port, support USB-Serial adapter for console access.
There are a few, like the hAP mini, that have USB only for power (5V power input only). They can't use it. All others support it.

The underlying issue is that you are trying to make Netwatch execute a script, that requires permissions it does not have.
