I'm sorry, I really don't understand what you're suggesting here. It's
not possible to simply replace a system's firmware with another
implementation. You could chainboot from one UEFI implementation into
another, but if the first implements secure boot then you'd have the
same set of bootstrapping problems as you would with just booting an OS.
