Your kextcache log shows other FakeSMC sub kexts is not loaded.
Please download the latest FakeSMC from RehabMan's bitbuckit and install all kexts inside that archive.

Also, don't forget to update your HWMonitor.app either. It already included inside the FakeSMC archive.
is it possible to use our trackpad as apple foretouch trackpad? I'm using Xcode and it doesn't detect force trackpad

I'm not a developer of VoodooI2C, so I have no idea to answer this question.
You should ask them.
But maybe buying the Magic Trackpad 2 with BT connect is the fastest solution.

Disable CFG Lock to support non-patch native power management & Enable Intel SpeedShift to support HWP (Experimental)

Few days ago, I realize this laptop have CFG Lock but can be disable by BIOS hot-patch.
Tried this method and tested, seems it works. So post this info as a record.

Warning!!!
1. Disable CFG Lock may met few side-effects (from predecessor experience, but I'm not meet this yet). You should know what you're doing before follow this.
2. BIOS patch is dangerous, even hot-patch. Use at your own risk!

OK, let's start!

Disable CFG Lock
  1. Same as we doing a BIOS hot-patch for DVMT-preallocated size, Boot into EFI Shell by using USB stick.
  2. This time we will looking for the variable ID as 0x4DE, this variable is a configuration of CFG Lock.
    According from IFR form:
    Code:
            Setting: CFG Lock, Variable: 0x4DE {05 91 F0 02 F1 02 81 02 01 00 DE 04 10 10 00 01 00}
                Option: Disabled, Value: 0x0 {09 07 04 00 00 00 00}
                Option: Enabled, Value: 0x1 {09 07 03 00 30 00 01}
  3. As we want to disable it, set the value to 0x0, then reboot.
    Code:
    setup_var 0x4DE 0x0
  4. Disable the following settings inside config.plist:
    > Delete config.plist/KernelAndKextPatches/KernelPm
    (Note: This option will be mark out or delete since CLOVER already detect the system to decide ON or OFF.)
    > config.plist/KernelAndKextPatches/KernelLapic=false​

Enable Intel SpeedShift
  1. Same as point 1 in 'Disable CFG lock', but we will looking for variable ID as 0x4AD, this variable is a configuration of Intel SpeedShift.
    According from IFR form:
    Code:
            Setting: Intel(R) Speed Shift Technology, Variable: 0x4AD {05 91 B6 01 B7 01 B7 01 01 00 AD 04 10 10 00 01 00}
                     Option: Disabled, Value: 0x0 {09 07 04 00 30 00 00}
                     Option: Enabled, Value: 0x1 {09 07 03 00 00 00 01}
  2. Set the value to 0x1 to enable SpeedShift.
    Code:
    setup_var 0x4AD 0x1
  3. Because we already used correct machine type (MacBookPro 14,1), so HWP will be enable automatically.
  4. Note that you have to keep enabling 'MSR 0xE2 xcpm_idle instant reboot' patch in config.plist/KernelAndKextPatches/KernelToPatch, IF CFG LOCK IS ENABLED.
    I'm not sure it need to be keeping or not when CFG Lock disabled. At least I have no issue after disable the patch with CFG Lock disabled.

After the test, the CPU frequency can be lower to 1GHz when idling. And feeling little more 'cool' than before.
Just the experiment, I suggest keep at current situation because it's enough. No need to change without any reason.

Here's a result by using AppleIntelInfo.kext to check.

What programs do you use for bios files? And what system?

Update:20181222
  • Update Lilu to 1.2.9
  • Update WhateverGreen to 1.2.5
  • Remove config.plist/KernelAndKextPatches/KernelPm since CLOVER can detect hardware to decide enable or not.
  • Set config.plist/KernelAndKextPatches/KernelLapic to false since no needed on this laptop for now.
  • Remove config.plist/KernelAndKextPatches/KernelXCPM since already included in ACPI/SSDT/Generate/PluginType.
New CLOVER archive has uploaded at #1.

Finally I got a time to try 'fresh' install on my laptop and it seems like everything works well.

.
Thanks for this guide.

Does anyone have an opinion on, or direct experience with, implementing this on the Inspiron 15 - 7580?

The model numbers are close, although I realise that may mean very little when it comes to the similarity of components.

Cheers...

7580 is totally different CPU model and iGPU (i5 is Kaby Lake-R and i7 is Whisky Lake.)
You may have to set FakeID in config.plist since we have to simulate as HD620.
And DO NOT use any patched DSDT.

Also, please update your profile. Need to include the hardware informations about your laptop.
