You have to change the partition scheme to guid in the 2nd pop-up before selecting the format in the first. Because: terrible UI.

No. You should migrate from the backup (see https://www.shirt-pocket.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5476).

Then, yes, I would reformat the backup as APFS.

Great! I'm glad it's working well for you.

No real trick here. You have to enable booting from external devices in the security preferences in Recovery (Cmd+R during power on; look in the Apple menu once you're in Recovery.)

"Carry across the APFS" isn't really the way to think about it. Because we're copying files - not the "disk format".

I would format the external as APFS if the source is APFS.

It's all automatic as far as I know. But it wouldn't convert an external to APFS, since you didn't actually run the installer on that drive.
