(e.g. macOS Sierra 10.12.x on a 2016 PC intel skylark based notebook)

the standard unibeast build seems to be incomplete for a primary bootup into OSX 10.12 install menu up to Dec 11th 2016. the hardware is pretty modern, intel skylake architecture.
the impression after reading all the member's contributions and questions is that the tonymacx86 forum would gain significantly regarding efficiency to build customised install software packages if we knew how to build or collect a config.plist file content with the addon drivers and kexts, addon extra install and config files.
we would e.g. take a config.plist file of a working hardware asset similar to our hardware and compare e.g. a device listing file(s) to our device listing file(s). that might be running a windows device manager on a macbook pro late 2016 and print it to file, then compare it to the device manager printout of the pc hardware we would like to use to run OSX on it.
then we would know what devices coding sections in a config.plist and which addon install files might work and which ones we should treat as a special device or as unavailable at a first (e.g. unibeast) install step and treat them later with a multibeast and addon stuff.
the stability might be achieved by treating each hardware component and device with a suiting configuration coding in the install procedure.
is there any method to get devices unknown to the apple environment working correctly with apple compatible coding ?
if all that basic knowledge will have to be elaborated from scratch, that would be a specialist's task. why let the forum member fishing in the dark if a software & hardware engineer's team could provide solutions for most or even any type of hardware and device existing on the market ?

question: what does it take to go through a hardware asset and collect suitable installation & configuration coding to build an install package for OSX and that specific hardware asset ?

question: is anybody offering that as a service for the forum or for interested customers ?

Thanks for your hints !
