Well, instructions highly advised to use RehabMan's latest built which I did.
Do you recommend updating the existing clover version to the latest or just re-make USB all over again?
Also, I used "config_HD615_620_630_640_650.plist" config file as my graphic card is HD620. what am I missing here?
yes but Rehabman hasn't been here in over a year

you may want to compare the one in your clover folder and the one you have downloaded. the one in your clover folder is completely different

best to just install newer clover to your usb installer

I think the confusion with config file was that I found another article, guy with HP Elitebook 850 G5 instead of 840 G4 used that config to make it work. At last, I used his config to test but no success again.
I am adding his config file as "other source" and RehabMan's config file. Can you compare them and see which one would work the best for my setup? I did not have success on both but I used RehanMan's CLOVER instead of newer one.
Will do new install in a bit.

best for you use a later version of clover first with config,plist from Rehabman

Why @RehabMan isn't replying anymore?
My theory (only my theory, he never said this) is that after posting "Read the FAQ" 159,469 times over a period of seven years people were still not doing what he asked them to and he had enough and quit.

Did what you advised, Rehabman's config did not work, I ended up using someone else's config who has a similar laptop and with that I was able to see the desktop for the first time. Updated CLOVER fixed the problem. Thank you.
Now I am able to reach to the desktop without the USB drive.
I'll play with this and do some research before posting any questions :)
Thank you!

SUCCESS!
After days of struggling with my Mojave install I can finally say that my HP Elitebook 840 G5 is finally up and running.
