Thank you so much! I really didn't know that using the "other" folder was bad.IOReg does not show AppleALC.kext or WhateverGreen.kext
IOReg does show Lilu.kext_v1.2.4, obsolete/update
IOReg does show NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext, deprecated/remove
Codecs are disabled, verify BIOS/.../HD Audio/Enabled

It seems I only had to turn off SIP and then use Hackintool to install the kexts. Now the only kext left in "other" is FakeSMC.kext which is apparently necessary to have there. HDMI/DP Audio works just great now!
I also installed FakeSMC.kext to /L/E along with the other ones because it displayed "missing dependency" errors if I didn't include it there too. Is that ok or will that cause something to break later on?
I'm still experiencing intermittent prohibitory symbol errors on boot. It won't boot properly (and instead showing the error symbol) 4/5 times I try. Is that a related issue or where can I get help with that?
EDIT: for anyone wondering; I had to replace OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi with OsxAptioFix2Drv-free2000.efi for the boot problems to go away. There's a very long list of things you can try to resolve problems like this: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/big-list-of-solutions-for-el-capitan-install-problems.173991/
(for El Capitan in this case but still seems to be accurate in my case)
