I'm using El Capitan on my HP Probook 6460b. I want to use display mirroring feature through the Display Port as Apple doesn't support VGA port and my laptop doesn't have HDMI port.

Does Apple support Display Port ? Or can I use Display Port to HDMI converter for display mirroring ?

DisplayPort is better supported than everything else as this is what Apple has used in all Macs since 2008.
I'm sure about Mini Display Port but not sure about Display Port.

Look brother, I've monitor that uses HDMI port only and my hackintosh laptop has a Display Port. Now my question is, whether I can use or not a "Display Port to HDMI" converter for display mirroring ?

DisplayPort and miniDisplayPort is exactly the same thing, just a different connector. So yes, it should work fine (provided your GPU is working properly).
Thanks a lot brother.
Will my luck favor me for Intel HD 3000 ?

If this is a laptop then you'd be better off using intel HD 3000 instead of dedicated graphics.

Yep brother. It's HP Probook 6460b and thank you also. I will try a Display Port to HDMI adapter.

Better to use Intel HD 3000. HDMI, DisplayPort should work fine however VGA will not.
