You can follow the guide to create the installation usb and complete it with my EFI. It should be enough to install BigSur
OK thank you very much. I try.

Thanks so much :). Everything works fine, but I have Catalina installed, I didn't have Big Sure installer.
Just two other things.
1) If I leave the pendrive inserted, osx starts otherwise it does not
2) The serial number is all 00000000
is there any way to change it? Thank you

1) you have to install OpenCore bootloader on your internal drive
2) you have to config SMBIOS section in config.plist

Both task are covered in many guides here and/or elsewhere in the web.
I'd have a look at dortania's guide

once you're done you can easily upgrade to BigSur using apple's software update, as a real mac would do.

Hello Daigosx. All done. Everything works fine. Thank you very much.
Do you recommend a usb to connect with wifi? With Sierra I used edimax but I see that the drivers are not found for the big sure.
Thank you.

I don't know much about USB WIFI adapters. I replaced the internal card.

Can you please tell me which model you changed it with and if you have a link where to buy it? Thank you

You have to patch the BIOS ( my guide is linked in the first post ) to replace the internal card.
There's a lot of card you can get (broadcom at most), search the forum to find out proper models
