Do I need to go through iGPU power management described in this thread, and then going to dGPU power management as described in another different thread?
IGPU disabled, no
Does the Lilu+WEG with framebuffer patching using Hackintool, already setup for Power Management as well?
No

But why does the Intel Gadget only show 2 or 3 different frequencies? It only bounces between 1300 and 4100, nothing in between...

??
I trust both
I wrote that because they show two different things, AppleIntelInfo says that it's working and Intel Gadget shows only a couple of frequencies in the log (attached in my report files).

The graph shows all frequencies hit, the table shows ridiculously variable intervals; reduce the interval to get more meaningful measurements
AppleIntelInfo says that it's working
Shows what P states were hit at least once, not sufficient to conclude PM is working
Intel Gadget shows only a couple of frequencies in the log
See above
IPG/Frequency shows CPU PM working
