Follow the Clover guide linked from the FAQ.

Yes, you are able to install mac OS on your notebook.
Create a bootable USB stick with RehabMans Clover guide. feartech already posted the link to this guide in #2.
After the installation you should install Clover bootloader to your EFI partition on your HDD/SDD.

Got mine working with El Capitan.

In Sierra, couldn't make anything to work, it will boot with Unibeast for Sierra, but Modifier Keys won't work ( Since Karabiner Events says that SysKeyDown and Up are being pressed every 500ms, Value 0x6), The Graphics patch for AppleIntelBDWGraphicsFramebuffer won't work either nor the DVMT value change from the UEFI Shell.

El Capitan works flawlessly, even the integrated HD5500:

Working:
Intel HD5500
Trackpad
Keyboard
Ethernet
USB 3.0 and 2.0
Audio
Bluetooth

Not Working:
WiFi Intel Wireles 3160AC
Web Camera
SD Card Reader

Ordered the M.2 (NGFF) WLAN card BCM94352Z as suggested by many people. (A pain in the back to get it, since only some vendors on ebay or alliexpress have it by a ridiculous price).

Pretty much everything i need to work, since most of the time i'm connected by ethernet.

Can you please upload EFI folder with patched files and config.plist.... I'm really waiting for your EFI...
