according to the first excerpt it seems you like to do
a usual "ReaR plus backup on USB disk" setup with
OUTPUT=USB
that create a bootable USB disk plus
BACKUP_URL=usb:///dev/disk/by-path/REAR-000
to backup to USB storage device.

This is described in "man rear" at
https://github.com/rear/rear/blob/master/doc/rear.8.adoc
and in "Getting Started ... quick start guide" at
http://relax-and-recover.org/documentation/getting-started
that shows in particular this etc/rear/local.conf
OUTPUT=USB
BACKUP=NETFS
BACKUP_URL=usb:///dev/disk/by-label/REAR-000

If you like to do a usual "ReaR plus backup on USB disk" setup
why don't you do it as usual as described there?

But according to the second excerpt it seems you like
to do something unusually special.
If yes what do you want to achieve with your
etc/rear/local.conf in the second excerpt?
I.e. what is the reasoning behind why you need
your special setup?

In general regarding "ReaR on USB disk" see
https://github.com/rear/rear/issues/1854

A side note regarding OUTPUT=USB plus OUTPUT_URL=... see
https://github.com/rear/rear/issues/1738
and regarding some other OUTPUT=USB limitations see
https://github.com/rear/rear/issues/2171
in particular see my other "side note" therein
and follow the links in that other "side note".
