Nope, JTAG needs some active silicon to work, and the presence or absence of a
passive connector can't be detected that way either.
Many motherboard assets like Ethernet, Audio, etc are connected by PCI but do
not take up a slot.
Unless the BIOS has a field somewhere that specifies it, and then one wonders
how trustworthy that data would be on any given motherboard, I don't think
the number of [filled|empty] slots can be detected either.
