ledger does allow you to control, in detail, how the output should be
formatted.  The default output is suitable for a console display but you
can modify this through appropriate arguments to the ledger command line
via babel.  For instance, I have this line in my org file for generating
a balance of my assets:

,#+call: year2020[:cmdline -V --format "%-20A %14T\n" bal --flat assets ]()

where year2020 is a ledger src block which covers my 2020-21 tax year.

You will need to look at the ledger documentation, which is intensive,
for how to specify the format string.  Ledger does come with an Emacs
info file: (ledger3) Format Strings
