comment Ubuntu 16.04: no module named 'lsb_release' error while creating startup disk
Are you attempting to create a 16.04 startup USB, but under an earlier version of Ubuntu? (eg. 14.04 LTS, 15.04, 15.10) What version of Ubuntu are you currently using?

comment Create ubuntu usb drive from existing installation
No, that may not be necessary. I was noting that (for best results) you need to used the install process. That still allows for custom partitions (and alongside Win10). Its just the 'cloning' you have to take care with.

comment Create ubuntu usb drive from existing installation
Note: You usually can not just clone all files, drivers, etc. from one platform (your desktop) to another (a new laptop). For laptops: battery, sleep states, and other hardware-specific features may not work correctly. You can manually define partitions (like on the link you have), and (after install) you can replicate much of your old folders (or settings).

comment How can I edit/create new launcher items in Unity by hand?
To clarify: The files in /usr/local/share are the launcher scripts created during application install. (as above) I recommend copying these to .local/share BEFORE attempting any further customisation.
