I set up my Hackintosh and generate the SN in SMBIOS with invalid check in apple coverage. However, after I use it for iCloud. It become valid register in apple coverage check since then. Should I change the SMBIOS?

That sounds correct.

You check that the serial number is not already in use and if not you can then use it.

Whatever system definition you chose you should now keep with that serial number. Mixing them up can cause problems in future.
