I could be super wrong but I have tried to use many Apple ID's to get my messages working. I've followed every guide possible and nothing. Then my brother tried his that he's had for many years that does not have TFA and it worked right away. Then I remembered I had an Apple ID that I've had from years ago, without TFA and it worked right away.

Not sure if one could turn TFA off and see if it works. I refuse to turn TFA on my working Apple ID due to not wanting to lose my iMessage and FaceTime on my hack.

I haven't yet signed into any icloud services, because one thing I've been worried about: what happens if I generate a good serial number and board sn, that is not being used right now, but later apple uses it for a real machine? Or maybe even some other hackintosh user? Is it possible that would be some ticking bomb that gets my apple id banned?

We all take the risk (if any) everyday lol. You'll be fine. More than likely your Mac model is not being sold in stores anymore to get an official registration of a serial number.
