vulgo.
Just out of interest, Is this not something that I would be able to do when in Sierra?
AFAIK the NVRAM variables involved are not accessible in macOS, design choice. Linux has efibootmgr. The EFI shell has bcfg.

Where do I start,
Not sure how to do this as I don't what to mess up my Windows part of the disk.
This is how the disk looks in EasyUEFI.

On the left you have your motherboard's boot menu. You can see Windows and Mac OS X added their entries when they were installed. As mentioned previously, the Mac OS X is useless to us.

In the central toolbar from top:
  • Move selected entry up the boot order
  • Create new entry
  • Remove selected entry
  • Edit selected entry
  • Enable/disable entry
  • ...
  • ...
  • Move entry down
All you do is select the EFI partition in the Disk/Partitions display, then add a new entry.

In the window that opens: Fill out the form, name the entry 'Clover', change type from 'Windows' to 'Other' and browse to efi/clover/cloverx64.efi to set the path.

Note that the UEFI boot menu is a list of paths, not disks as used in BIOS booting.

Just leave the windows entry alone. Windows "needs" it to boot - even if you start it from Clover.

You are able to boot to Clover without the USB? Zip and upload your /EFI/CLOVER folder minus the THEMES folder (the one from the SSD)

Couple of questions about your EFI folder
  • Are you using the same config plist from the USB you were using, or a different one?
  • Where did you get the files in /efi/clover/acpi/patched? Are they for your MSI motherboard, or for a different motherboard?

Do you have a Microsoft Folder in EFI?
