Sorry, but I fail to parse most of this.

You are talking about GPT, not dk(4) or something?

You can use dk(4) with MBR or any other on-disk format.

Not sure what you mean with new kernel or doing dkscan_bsdlabel/add 

Maybe you can rephrase your question, there might be some assumptions in it
that better be spelled out explicitly.
