I haven't got any solutions for accessing KMZ files via a My Maps MSID/MID in Leaflet. However, in general, to load a KMZ file in Leaflet, you can use JSZip (along with the getBinaryContent method of JSZipUtils) to extract the KML, then Leaflet Omnivore to parse the result. JSZip will produce an object containing all the files in an archive, and you can ...

ArcMap 10.x has a tool for creating KML files directly. The kmz files created by the Map to KML tool in ArcMap 10 can be opened in Google Earth but do NOT work directly on Garmin GPS units. This is because the image format required by Garmin is JPG, and the image saved in the KMZ file is a PNG. A workaround: Create your map document, then run the Map to ...

(When Google Earth opens a KMZ file, it scans the file, looking for the first .kml file in this list. It ignores all subsequent ...

It seems to that your .kml file might just link to a WMS (Web Mapping Service.) To find out, you can open you kml in a text editor, then look for an URL within the document. Look for WMS in the URL. If it's a WMS layer, then you cannot save it as a shapefile. WMS servers take the client request and push composite rasters back. However, if you are lucky, ...

It's odd, usually WMS are the kinds of data fetched online. If you can manage to identify where that KMZ is hosted either locally or remotely, it's just a few clicks away in QGIS -> add layer -> load it -> right click -> save as
