Always, use the forum to upload and attach the files. External links must be avoided.
What's your Trackpad? I2C or PS/2?
What's your Audio Codec?

Ok sure.

Trackpad must be I2C
And Audio | Intel HDA - Realtek ALC255

Can I do something for running wifi ?
Wireless AC Atheros ATH9565

And do you have any idea for FN Keys and battery status ?

What model? I2C Trackpad needs patching.

Attach DPCIManager screenshot to confirm. I doubt if it's ALC255. Maybe it's ALC256. This is a supported Audio Codec. You shouldn't have any issues with it. Use Layout ID=3/13 to check. Make sure you patch your DSDT.

Atheros AR9565 is supported but not fully. @Cyberdevs did a nice work for it. Check the downloads section of the forums.
