I am using an UltraWide monitor while working from home. But when I'm screen sharing, it's a weird view for the others so I am hoping to find a quick way to change my resolution to black bars on the sides and give me a more 'normal' resolution.

Is there any app/script that can help me achieve this?

Try SwitchResX. I've used it for nearly the same use case as you, worked just fine for me.

I use both the GUI application Display Menu and the command line utility displayplacer, depending on my needs.

Both of these applications are currently free1.

Display Menu loads to the menu bar and is easily clicked, although I'd imagine the clicking could be automated using AppleScript if need be.

I use displayplacer in shell scripts.

Note: I am not associated with the developers of the aforementioned applications, just a satisfied user.
