I’ll answering your last question first. The newer live-usb ISO’s are hybrids that work for both MBR and GPT systems.
gparted cannot read these after Startup Disk Creator has burned the ISO to the USB flash drive. Rather than taking your USB to another computer to reformat it you can use
dd (Data Destroyer, real name Data Duplicator):
sudo dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX bs=512 count=1
sde, or whatever your USB drive letter is.
dd with great caution!
As you discovered Ubuntu 16.04 Startup Disk Creator no longer provides an option for persistence storage for a Live Boot USB Flash Drive. But
mkusb does provide this feature and it works well even for creating a pre-release Ubuntu 18.04 Live Boot USB.

mkusb details read about it here.
