Okay. The bubbles under the radiator cap part of this guide are just one sign of a head gasket issue. So, if you see bubbles then that means you have an issue. However, that is not the only sign. You can have a head gasket issue with no bubbles under the cap.
So, if you are sure that this was while smoke then we need to do the chemical test shown in this guide as well. That is the most definitive way to rule out a head gasket. If we can't rule that out for sure, then we may be wasting time and efforts looking at other things.
If this is not white smoke, then we can move on. However, the fact that you have oil burning as well, it is more and more looking like internal engine issues, so we need to confirm this first.
