Thanks mate. The battery status is working. The only thing that is left is the keyboard brightness toggle. Since I am on Mojave the Rog HID doesn't work. Any idea how to make that work?
You can try AsusSMC - it has HID device support for Mojave.
In my experience it hasn't ever worked, but it appears most of the problems are related to HID on Catalina, so it's worth a try. Make sure you have an extra USB keyboard lying around if something goes wrong.

AsusSMC works for rest of the keys except keyboard backlight. Can this be patched manually?

No, not that I know of. You'll have to create a pull request with the fixes, or request the author to fix it for you (open an issue)

No I mean fix this manually by patching DSDT and mapping the keys and without using any asusSMC

It's not possible. Sorry. The keyboard is HID/USB, which can not be patched via ACPI (in the same way that PS2 can).
The most you can do is map the keyboard's port so it "works", and then use AsusSMC in HID mode, or ROG-HID to get it functional.

Did you get your keyboard backlight toggle working?
