Use Divi Builder or Use Default Editor
Use Default Editor seems best unless you want to use some of Divi’ special features within your post.
Looks like you can’t select post format with Divi Builder also
Divi does support post format
Use Default Editor (not Use Divi Builder as option not present with it)

You can select no sidebar for each post, but sidebar will be displayed for view all posts in category etc. There is no option to disable, but there are various hacks to do it if important
