Chart help..

The attached image shows 2 charts (A and B).

In chart A, the data source is:     =SERIES(Formulas!$C$10,,Formulas!$D$10:$AA$10,1)

Q1: What these charts are called (they occupy single cell). I think they have a special name.
Q2. How one start a new chart like this for another data source, for example:
        =SERIES(Formulas!$C$16,,Formulas!$D$16:$AA$16,1)
FYI, when I copy and pasted chart A to a new location and change 10 (three places) to 16 in this data source formula. It doesn't display the data because the original chart A has data values like 2.3, 4.5, etc. whereas the new series for row 16 has series like 116, 189, etc. So, the scalability is my problem here. I guess if I start a fresh chart, then I may be having a good control about this scalability.
Q3: The chart B is not selectable. I do not know what is the proper name for chart B either, or how to create it. Please give me some help with these 3 questions.

Thank you.

Thank you for the response.

As shown on the attached imge, after insert/Sparklines, I got "Data Source Reference is not valid" message.

Do you have any idea how I can handle this?

Is Q2 created in the same manner?
