Install 1820A, restart, reply with all requested files

Why do you have native dsdt and ssdts in ACPI/patched?
Well, the laptop doesn't boot with the BCM94350ZAE card inserted. I can't get to macOS to get log, I'm stuck at boot.
I've inserted the BCM94350ZAE card into another desktop hackintosh, and it worked.
I've another BCM943602BAED card, and it's working in both computers but for the laptop, the card is a bit to large to fit well.
For my dsdt and ssdts in ACPI/patched, what do you mean by "native" ? I've patched them according to https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-patching-laptop-dsdt-ssdts.152573/.

Seems like lots of people are having problem with BCM94352Z, like the mouse will be laggy occasionally if you connect to 2.4Ghz wifi. From what I got in a certain reddit thread, the bluetooth and the wifi don't seem like recognised as one entity, instead they're recognised as separate hardwares. And this is why bluetoothCoexMgmt setting in /Library/Preferences/com.apple.airport.bt.plist doesn't work.
Is there any workaround for this? except using the 5Ghz wifi, please.
Thanks.

Two entities, different hardware, separate instances. BT problems are often caused by incorrect macOS USB implementation.

Already done it; still laggy and when I checked it at wifi.log, the bluetoothcoex config is still failed to load properly. I also attach the log to make it clearer for you.
