Setting

Characterset=UTF16

in odbc.ini, results UTF16 session. But you need to makesure, what you really want to achieve. Setting only UTF-16 session-character-set does not mean your application(GG or whatever) can receive or send UTF-16 data. To send or receive UTF-16 data application must be UTF-16 aware. You might need to check with GoldenGate for UTF16 support.
