Is there a way to get the partition's type when using a GPT system, like how you get an ID for the partition type from the MBR?

Yes: the PartitionTypeGUID field in the partition entry.

The definition of this field can be found in the UEFI specification. There's also a pretty good list of existing GUIDs (and other useful information) in Wikipedia.
