Please help smoke after spark plug change

After experiencing a rough idle, engine hesitation and surging, and a CEL Cylinder 1 Misfire I changed all 6 of my spark plugs yesterday. After the change I drove about 2 blocks and noticed white smoke coming from the passenger side of my engine bay and a burning oil smell. I took it to a nearby mechanic who said my Valve Cover Gasket was leaking and he charged me 450$ to fix it overnight. The car is still smoking a little and has a burnt oil smell the mechanic said that is normal and i have to drive it more to burn off the oil that was leaking before but I feel like he didnt fix any problem. Is this smoke and smell normal after a spark plug change?

Here is a picture of my old plugs
