Here are some questions :

1) Are there any command (or set of commands) that someone can run to see if there are any errors ?
2) I understand that acpi hotpatch is preferred over static ddst one , in case of changing hardware. Are there any other benefits ? For example , getting closer to a real mac or speed , power management or the ability to modify more aspects of the system ?

Not really.
There is the "sanity check"... Disassemble patchmatic -extract files with -da -dl: iasl -da -dl *.aml
If you have errors (duplicate symbols) with that, then macOS will also likely have problems loading your code.

A hotpatch setup is easier to share for other users of same/similar laptop.
Otherwise, static patch result same as hotpatch (assuming both are done correctly).

Did you look at your 'pathmatic.txt'? It appears to be a clean disassembly of your patchmatic output, so at least you know that your ACPI hotpatch setup passes the basic 'sanity check'.

No idea what you're referring to with "diffirent approach and changed some things."

That is typical, not really unexpected.

No it is not. It didn't happen with sdst static or previous hotpatch.
My guess is some conflict about audio or i2c device. But can't find it.

Easy to eliminate I2C and/or audio and test...

If you have a static patch setup that is working to your satisfaction, start with that. Then convert each static patch to hotpatch, ONE AT A TIME and test before moving on to the next one. Always verify your patches are accomplishing what you expect by checking your patchmatic -extract output and comparing against ACPI/origin.
