Yes no problem.
In clover i changed board-id under smbios (on picture) and under Rt Variables i changed BooterConfig (0x0028) and CsrActiveConfig (0x0067) to disable system protection.

In DSDT i only modified under Device (GFX0) connector-types, display-connect-flags, hotplug, etc...
Probably not all is needed but experimenting.

Code:

Please share your findings.
Your code is great, i'm using bits of it for the 2011 iMac and a 770m. I am using Open Core as a bootloader and a 2011 DSDT. First I have to change all display maps from @3 to @0 because at least with the 2011 iMac @0 is the internal Display. I have the display showing up as Built in and Target Display Mode is working. When controlling brightness from another Mac, I can change the brightness no problem. But From System preferences within Mac OS the slider doesn't change brightness. I manually created my EDID for my LCD but it turns out they are pretty much identical. I think it's related to the PWM values entered, but I am unsure how to generate them. Thank you for the work you have put into this. I will upload my DSDT later today.

Yes display maps @0 also on other compatible cards after Nick's vbios, looks like he changed outputs too.
For brightness control i tried a lot of different PWM settings but nothing worked so far. So i went for HW mod.
Entering EDID is not necessary as it gets detected ok.

Me and Nick have brightness working on the 2011 21.5" models but had panicking from AGPM on the 27". Your DSDT was able to fix this issue (built-in) we we're having. Which is making great progress. Its just been a while since I Heard from Nick, I'm sure he could make the Same Vbios change to the 7xx cards as the Quadros for Brightness.

if youneed a tester for some, I have an 2011 iMac with a GTX 765mcurrentlyrunning on your v3 vbios, amazing to get this far, never thought I could revive my imac after the gpu died on me 6 months ago ;)
