There you go. Thanks for your time!
The EFI folder looks generally okay, but one thing to try is shown in the screenshot:

The USBports kext was adjusted for my setup, with an NVME drive with an adapter connected to the mobo's internal USB-C port. What is wrong?

Just wanted to mention that I was able to boot into macOS Mojave using the EFI folder that you attached.
I can boot Big Sur and the Mojave rescue partition fine with this EFI. So I guess the problem lies somewhere in this particular Mojave install.
The question is, what? It stops very early in the boot process.

I have a plan B: wipe the drive. Install Big Sur. Send the disk back. Let the owner boot from it. Use the migration assistant to migrate from his current Mojave install.

Things he will have to do himself:
Upgrade BIOS and make sure CFG is off.
Put in the serials of his current Clover build. What is absolutely necessary?
Adapt USB stuff to his own needs

Unfortunately he might have trouble with some third party kexts as the whole allowing these kexts system is broken in BS.

Am I forgetting anything?

The port ‘type’ assignments are incorrect. A blue, red or yellow port is Type 3. A USB-C port is type 9. Only black USB ports are type 0. Internal USB 2 ports are type 255. The Thunderbolt USB ports (SSP1 and SSP2) should be removed because they’re defined in the Thunderbolt SSDT.

I am using hackintool to have a look at my current USB port definitions. So I can get rid of the SSPx ports, check.
But the rest is OK, no? Ports that can be used as USB2 and USB3 will have to be defined twice, don't they?

See screenshot.

Thanks for your help!

A USB-C port is type 0. Only black USB ports are type 0. Internal USB 2 ports are type 255.

I don't get this. USB-C is 0, and black USB ports are what?
If you reload the webpage you’ll find the answer! Typo was corrected.
