I think the salt bridge is always included in the cell diagram as || to separate the anode on the left from the cathode on the right. Since a proper cell should always have a salt bridge to function correctly and avoid charge buildup, the salt bridge is an essential part of the cell diagram, which outlines the setup of the cell.
You will use the inert electrode such as Pt when you need a metal to carry the e- from the anode to the electrode. For example, if you have a gas and an aqueous, then you would use the inert electrode. You would also use it if you had all aqueous.
