But there's just one problem; the card seems recognized in the audio settings but actually there's no sound! Also the system profiler seems quite strange; check the attached pictures out...

I'm quite noob in this Hackintosh world, can someone help me? If useful, here are the verbs I found in Windows Registry:

P.S.: I have three jacks, Headphone, Mic and Line In
EDIT: I'm also having this errors on boot, I saw them booting with -v

Did you check all ports? Can you change system volume from taskbar / keyboard keys?
Whoa, that was fast
Yes, I tried all the ports but none of them was working I can also change the volume from taskbar and keyboard keys, but there's still no sound...
Also, the "Master" sliders in Audio MIDI Config are at 0 and greyed out, for all the inputs/outputs O.o

I have been trying countless combinations of kexts from around the net to get my ALC888 sound working.
Why didn't you just install VoodooHDA and then modify the kext? To find device and vendor ID look at THIS. Be sure to install JAVA JDK or the System Info program will not work. Your output should look like this...
Be sure to choose the right audio device. My graphics card has an audio device. That is presumably for HDMI.
Copy the installed VoodooHDA to the desktop. Now right click on the installed VoodooHDA kext and click "show package contents". A folder called contents should be visible. Double click on that. You should see a file called "Info.plist". Open that with TextEdit. Modify the two lines just like the guide says. Your finished product should look something like this...
Once you are sure everything is correct save the file and reinstall it back into s/l/e using kextwizard. Delete the AppleHDA kext. Repair permissions and rebuild caches and then reboot. Everything should work... hopefully. You will have to go into the Voodoo prefpane to make some adjustments for optimal sound. Check out the guide I linked to earlier it has some other edits you can do to the Info.plist if you need to tweak VoodooHDA beyond what you can do in the prefpane. This method works well to get rid of VoodooHDA kernel panics.
It's not "vanilla" but you only add one kext and you actually delete another. The thing is if you do an update you must remember to remove the AppleHDA kext or you could have a KP.

I tried VoodooHDA, it had terrible quality if I remember correctly and low sound volume for my card.
Like I said modify the kext, tweak the sliders in the prefpane and if you need to do tweaking beyond that edit the Info.plist. I believe your low volume issue with VoodooHDA could be solved with this...
I have found installing VoodooHDA is only the first step. A lot of people have to tweak it a bit to get optimal sound.
Caveat! I have not tried other sound methods. They may sound better than VoodooHDA even with all the tweaks. I am in the process of exploring DSDT. I will report back if I get it working and it sounds better.

you should have same node id as this kext,i use this one on my acer and working perfectly but maybe different verbs.....
need to edit dsdt or use hda enabler anyway.
you can compare verbs with yours.
