getting the same graphical window server error.
Your SSDT-DiscreteSpoof.aml is wrong.
This code is wrong:
Code:
    Method (__SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._DSM, 4, NotSerialized)  // _DSM: Device-Specific Method
Should be:
Code:
    Method (_SB.PCI0.PEG0.PEGP._DSM, 4, NotSerialized)  // _DSM: Device-Specific Method

IntelBacklight.kext has nothing to do with keyboard backlight.
And also has nothing to do with mapping brightness keys.
And... won't help you if your internal display is connected to the Nvidia device.
And... IntelBacklight.kext does not work with 10.13 (or 10.12.4 and later).

Your profile indicates you have Intel HD530... For implementing backlight control on HD530, read here:
