Hi, I am using the BCM94352Z wifi/bluetooth card, with a Sierra 10.12.3 installation.
The wifi is not listed in "About this mac" under wifi, but in IOreg I see something about BCM...

I found this thread about this issue, but I can't see the wifi, maybe I lost some detail.
In L/E I see AirPortBrcm4360.kext and I attach my plist because I am not sure at 100% with the code inserted in the "KextsToPatch" area...

Your config.plist is corrupt.
Never use a text editor to edit your config.plist... always use a plist editor such as Xcode or PlistEdit Pro.

Hallo Rehabman,
damn I am pretty sure I made a mistake yesterday, adding the BCM patch to the "KextsToPatch" section.
I was using textedit as txt because I know well html, and Clover configurator often can't open files.

Chosed Plist editor Pro

Your config.plist is corrupt.
I found my error, I leave a W in line1! (Probably a missed ctrl+W). Now I can open it with Plistedit pro.
I attach the corrected plist file.

After that, following the resource, now I have in L/E and S/L/E the IO80211Family.kext and AirPortBrcm4360.kext.
The first is extracted from my Sierra 10.12.2 installer, the second from thread in post1.

No need to install any replacement for IO80211Family.kext or AirPortBrcm4360.kext. Both are installed to the correct location by the macOS/OS X installer.

Ok. I need to delete them from S/E S/L/E?
Today I opened again the case and checked that product code on m.2 wifi card was correct.
It'right. I check also the two little connectors. They're in place.

Actually I don't have a Windows partiiton, but in Ioreg I see something about BCM

No need to delete or install anything related to IO80211Family.kext.
The versions provided by the OS X/macOS installer are fine.

Installing Windows is easy. You should do it to verify your hardware is working.

Can't install windows, no more drives...

I found this guide for a similar card
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/...broadcom-bcm94352hmb-wifi-not-working.216491/
Followed but not working

Requirements for BCM94352 are in the laptop FAQ.

Nothing more. Nothing less. Start with a fresh install (since you already mentioned replacing kexts that shouldn't be replaced)

But you should test on Windows. You can install Win10 on a small (64gb) partition...

Ok, solved WIFI
Started from my older backup plist file, and added the patch again + FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext + FakePCIID.kext
There was something in patches added that were blocking wifi...
Start with a fresh install (since you already mentioned replacing kexts that shouldn't be replaced)

Bluetooth it seem working in menu but Hackintosh cannot yet discover device compatible,
I will complete soon.
