Well at least we narrowed it down to iGPU/monitor related

I would still disable CSM, but leave my EFI release untouched
Try this, it's my config but it includes edid override
OMG Thanks @blazinsmokey your config also solved my issues!!

Just one more Question. Did anybody get to make iMessage and FaceTime work? And yes, I changed the SMBIOS a couple of times now. It is not an urgent issue I'm just being curious if anybody got it to work.

Guys with 4K, I believe it is what it is. Updated guide, the link below will help you understand.
  • You will screens will unfortunately max out at 48Hz. It doesn't appear to be fixed unless OpenCore devs decide to implement it. Link here
The only thing I can think of is trying to make macOS see the screen as external... USB-C to HDMI 2.0 gives 4K 60 without issues. I wonder if there is a way to trick it? This is beyond my pay grade. Sorry.
Seems like 4K displays are not supported by apple, i tried my displays EDID and it did not work. Maybe we can find a 2k EDID and see if that would increase HZ

Anyone know how to fix my HDMI issues after sleep? Monitor doesn't work until I unplug and replug it in.

Also, where exactly in the UEFI do I disable CSM? I'm not seeing it at all (probably just blind though).

Also, I have the "M.2 NGFF WiFi Network adapter card Broadcom BCM94360NG Wireless Card 1200M BT4.0" and wifi works but not bluetooth. Any ideas how I can set this up to work with this?

Thank you!

Thank you for the excellent guide , it got me further then i was expecting as this is my first time doing it.
After reading alot i am able to start the installation process but it suddenly crash every time on 9,10 minutes reaming time.
After restarting i am able to see the drive where i installed macos in opencore picker but if i chose it i am in a restart loop.
I used the 4 k config.plist
I followed the instructios and disabled CFG verified it as well. Also the recommened options.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Alright, i am happy to say that i have successfully installed following this guide.
The error i was facing before was due to the fact that before installing the OS i was erasing my drive in "Journaled" fs format. Once i changed to to APFS the install went smoothly.
I am leaving the last post for Refrence if some one else ran into same problem.

The install script for ComboJack has a typo on line 1 & 4
Bash:
sudo cp ComboJack /usr/local/bin
sudo cp hda-verb /usr/local/bin
Without the trailing "/" its overwriting the bin folder.
I changed it to
sudo cp ComboJack /usr/local/bin/
sudo cp hda-verb /usr/local/bin/
And it worked fine.
Thank you @blazinsmokey for your work.
