How about coding? What else would be needed? I'm thinking it's better off if I just upgrade to 6WB digital instrument cluster to save myself the headache.
I have a 2018 530e with the 6WB digital display. I actually prefer that to the reverse gauge newer version.

So you could upgrade to the older 6WB display which works with IDrive 6. I don't think you lose much doing that.
