I've decided to install Mac OS Mojave 10.14 on my laptop. I've installed it using the vanilla method (dosdude1 patcher, TINU, clover on USB drive)Actually I need to fix some things such as the CMD key (that changed from WIN key to L_ALT key), the brightness control and the fn keys (such as brightness up and down)
N.B. I've actually ordered a DW1560 (BCM94352Z) WiFi M.2 card because my QCA9377 doesn't work.
Below you can find my CLOVER CONFIG, the ioreg and the acpi/origin folder of CLOVER extracted using the F4 method.
Dell Inspiron 5370 HW:
CPU => i5-8250u
GPU => Intel Graphics UHD 620
RAM => 8GB DDR4 2400MHz
SSD => 256 GB M.2
WIFI/BT => QCA9377 (still waiting for the DW1560 wifi card)

I have successfully got my Hackbook online, using USB tethering. Thanks to Herve (can't use special characters, you know who you are!), I also got my audio working.
I am very much ready to begin setting up iCloud, the App Store, and iMessage/FaceTime. Those services (especially the latter two) are what got me into hackintoshing.
Problem: The listed services fail to sign me in. iCloud sign in from System Preferences returns "Unable to sign in because of a problem communicating with iCloud."
FaceTime returns a registration process fail, the App Store reports that my computer can't be verified, and iMessage reports an activation error. However, iTunes works, except no Apple Music.
I've hacked my Dell XPS L502X with an install of OS X Mavericks 10.9.5 (vanilla install). All is good and all, except that there is no WiFi (planning on buying wifi dongle) and that there is no audio.
The lack of internet irks me, but I can fix that at a later date. What I can't deal with is the lack of audio. I've tried everything, but there is no luck. AppleALC, Voodoo/AppleHDA, among others.
Oh, if I have to, I can reinstall OS X, since nothing important is on the partition.
All replies and answers are welcome!
Thanks in Advance!
EDIT: Thanks to Hervé, I've been able to get my audio working, and so can you!
All you need is...
A hackintosh that has the Realtek ALC665 codec (you can't change codecs!)
AppleALC.kext (latest version)
VoodooHDA.kext (again, latest version)
A USB flash drive (if you have no WiFi on hackintosh)
A secondary computer/way to put files onto the drive (again, no WiFi on hackintosh)
1. Store the files you need on your hackintosh
1a. Download them straight thru your hackintosh
1b. Use a secondary device to download them and store on a flash drive.
2. Open terminal on your computer and type "diskutil mount EFI" in said terminal. Of course, remove the quotation marks.
3. On your EFI partition, navigate to EFI/CLOVER/kexts/Other
4. Drag n' Drop the kexts you have downloaded on your computer to that folder.
5. Cross your fingers and reboot
5a. (Optional) Suffer a kernel panic during boot because VoodooPS2 doesn't like you.
