Do you already have solid, well-defined EFI folders for these two motherboards? If so, would you like to contribute them yourselves?
Hi, it is cooked up one. It is Clover, not Opencore.

Unfortunately Clover is not supported. You can migrate your system from Clover to OpenCore by following one of the similar ASUS builds that is in the App. You can also consult the Dortania OpenCore guide.

Contraindication (Reason NOT to Use this App):
  • If you have a multi-boot system (macOS, Windows, Linux, etc.) and the boot loaders for those other operating systems (Windows, Linux) are located in the same EFI folder as OpenCore itself, please do not use this HackinDROM App.
In a Multi-boot single drive scenario,
you can still use this amazing piece of software by following the below:

1- Mount your EFI Partition
2- Copy Microsoft, Ubuntu, or any other OS boot loader folder inside your EFI folder, preferably your entire EFI folder to the desktop
3- Follow @CaseySJ guide (Update your Opencore with HackinDROM)
4- Boot to macOS
5- Mount your EFI
6- Copy back Microsoft, Ubuntu folders to the EFI folder again
7- Check your Windows and Linux boot entries in your new config.plist file Misc/Entries
*(copy them back from the old config.plist file)
**(Remap with OpenShell and add them back to your new config.plist)
if needed

And you are DONE

Let's use the example of Gigabyte Z490 Designare to illustrate the process of managing multiple EFI folders. When we select this entry, we see a list of all available OpenCore versions.

I guess you were talking about Z390, unless you are a beta tester of a new MB :)
Obviously forgiven, looking at the tremendous job you are doing ;-)

Yes we can copy all the other sub folders in EFI folder. But we can remove the APPLE sub folder because that is not needed.
