Setting GraphicsMode=1280x1024 (or whatever it is) in /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist should work.
I guess if your solution involves deleting all the nvidia (NV* and Geforce*) driver files, then there's probably nothing you can do. Not sure if NVDAResman.kext or any other NV/GF kext is needed for this.
You should really be running ML with that hardware, both your 680 and your 660 are natively supported as of 10.8.3, you don't even need GraphicsEnabler or anything else, it just works. I'm in Hackintosh heaven here.

The easiest way would be to just run the update (this way you won't miss any important bits), but you'd probably have to change model identifier in smbios.plist (temporarily of course) so the installer thinks it's running on the MacBookPro it was meant to run on. That's what I'd try first.
I guess it would be prudent to experiment with this on a second installation of Lion. It might be worth it, then again it could be a complete waste of time...either way, please post your findings.

I did back up the original kexts beforehand so I have no problem being able to restore my system back to normal. Any suggestions to what this might mean?

This lines you got mean that your system successfully boots, but the GUI doesn't load. If you are using GraphicsEnabler=Yes, switch to GraphicsEnabler=No.
P.S.: another suggestion, perhaps not related to your current issue, but that will save you headaches in the future: if VT-D is enabled in the BIOS, disable -it.

Believe, I’m far from a noob, but I don’t make a living on building hacks as to obligate me to have to care about knowing the difference between a KP and verbose line boot process freezes.
So you cannot complain if other people think you are a beginner and give you wrong advices, to make things worse. Knowing the terminology will make easier to read and understand guides and tutorials out there so you can figure out things by yourself with more ease. It's a win-win. And, as long as you asking help to others, it's the minimum that's expected from you. No offense: take it as a good advice.

Well to better clarify myself, I know my terminology but it may not be technically as sound as how u put things. I definitely can pick up on what I need to know for how to troubleshoot problems and also to relay my message so others can understand me. And if worse comes to worse or in an event I find it difficult to explain myself, I post pics to illustrate.

I was able to effectively remove this error by going to my installation drive and remove ACPI_SMC_Platform plugin found in System/Library/Extensions/IOPlatformPluginFamily.kext/ Show Package Contents/Contents/Plugins, and then repair permissions. Once that was solved, I tried to boot in verbose mode again, but the verbose line boot process freezes again and it is stuck at: /drv/ Hyploctls.c:779 loctl VT-d status:0
so I attempted to change VT-d into VT-x in the BIOS. The only problem is that that is not an option in my BIOS.
Any ideas how to set it as VT-x? Thanks

Try booting with dart=0....I'm not sure if that flag existed in 10.7.x though.
Why are you using both VoodooPS2SynapticsTouchpad and ApplePS2trackpad? That can't possibly work well..
Also the double errors on AppleIntelCPUPowermanagement.kext are suspicious, what's up with that?
