I already have a fusion drive with Chameleon setup and have been experimenting with clover on a usb flash drive.

 

Essentially you're saying, once I have it all working on my usb drive, I can simply copy the usb EFI partition over my actual EFI partitions?

 

Also why is it necessary to put it on both EFI partitions?
