I never tried guest wifi config in QuickSet (in fact, I didn't even know it was there), but since it is there, doesn't it already do what you want?
People who quote full posts should be spanked with ethernet cable. Some exceptions for multi-topic threads may apply.

I am not sure, will try to find what does it exactly set when quick setup is used.

Well, as you can see it makes a virtual wlan interface with different SSID.
I would hope it also creates another bridge with separate DHCP server and NAT to internet, and no routing to the normal network.
When it does not (and puts the guest wifi in the same bridge as the normal one) you can manually correct that.

I configured different VLAN's to isolate my guest network from my normal network. This way both my Unifi accesspoints and my wAP ac can be easibly configured to support different networks. Indeed, virtual wlans connected to a specific VLAN.
