Not sure about it but static prevents objects to move (another point of view required). If set to false and your object is colliding another one, force effects will throw your object away.

??? Gazebo provides several tools that you can check there. I don't know what your application is, but you can use both urdf and models. I don't know if there're equivalent.

so this is better option

The final solution is your choice, but maybe you could describe more the problem to understand why spawning urdf files make gazebo crash. Urdf files should spawn as well as models, so maybe there is a bug to be reported or a wrong practice to correct. But that's your choice.

URDF models can be spawned in Gazebo according this tutorial.

You have to ensure that all required fields in urdf are present (visual but also collision, inertia ...) to be sure that you model will be displayed.
