You suggested that I’ll buy the BCM94352HMB , so I bought it.
How do I rebrand a wireless card?

I already mentioned about whitelist. The same is covered in the FAQ thread. Try to find what card is supported on your Laptop. Or ask on the site for BIOS mod.

If you don't remember, none of the cards that support this laptop, support MacOS.
You also told me that I can rebrand the card. The issue it that I don't know how. That's why I asked.
I don't want to brick the laptop so I am not going to mess with programming the BIOS.

I have the BCM94352HMB rn and I just need to rebrand it.

It's already available. Rebranded will include the part number or the model number which excludes the whitelist. Often comes for Lenovo.

You are not answering my question (again)...
I asked how to rebrand it.
Is there a guide somewhere?

Here are some links which can help you in the process.

ok. And how do I mod the BIOS?
I searched in the BIOS Mods website and didn't find a mod for my laptop.
Do I just need to request one?

nvm, someone from the administration team modded one of the BIOS versions this laptop had
and it comes as a exe like the original flasher

So, I am flashing Windows PE on a USB drive and going to try to flash that BIOS like I did with the official versions

Well, it bricked the laptop...
I spent the last 2 hours trying to fix it and no luck.

Is the only way to fix it is to buy a BIOS flasher?
