Not mixing diary and meat without a vow to avoid
I believe you are mixing in verses or questionable sources that are unrelated to the actual issues concerning mixing meat with milk. G-d's commandment in the Torah forbids Jews to eat meat that was cooked with milk, and this is communicated as a simple statement in three separate verses: Exodus 23:19, Exodus 34:19, and Deuteronomy 14:21 ("You shall not boil a kid in its mother's milk"). Aside from teaching that G-d prohibits Jews to cook meat in milk, the Torah does not anywhere call it an "abomination".

Therefore it seems that your reason for not eating meat with milk is mistaken. In fact, it is a supra-logical, purely religious Jewish ritual commandment. As such, it does not provide any practical benefit for a Gentile. If a Gentile imposes this upon himself because of the religious reason you cited, this amounts to adding on a purely religious commandment for himself, which should not be done.

So yes, it is definitely permitted for you (as a Noahide) to eat a cheeseburger. That doesn't mean that you have to force yourself to do so. You can always choose to eat something else based on your feelings and tastes. If the thought of eating it (or any other food) causes you a reflex reaction of emotional discomfort, that's a valid reason to consider when deciding whether or not to eat it.
