I am using QGIS 3.8.3.

Why in the composer layout, when I insert the graphic scale bar, both options (Cap style and Alignment) on the Item properties -> Display menu are disabled and the scale bar is always left aligned?

this depends from the main-properties for the scale-bar: enter image description here

Not all kinds of scalebars allow you to change/use this , therefore its gray. Alignment for example only works with numeric "scalebar"
