I'm no expert on the specifics of EDL mode or most of the unbrick tools and methods. I only have a general knowledge through observation and reading. I'm pretty careful with my devices so I've never been in a position that required any kind of hardcore unbrick tools and methods. I've unbricked a few devices but none of them were in a state that was challenging to correct.
I was more or less just giving a general explanation of how USB functionality is handled on android devices and how the kernel works in regard to USB connectivity.
If the device will not make any kind of connection at all, the only other option is for a professional shop to pull your data from the device via a process that requires connecting leads to certain points on the motherboard/internal sdcard.

Regardless of your actual experience, you still gave a pretty good explanation, I would not have known about the accessing of the partitions.
In regards to that, how would I gain access to those partitions via USB appearing in Qualcomm 9008 in device manager? and in the state my device is in?

How is now detected your device is the correct (As I said you previously too)
Regarding if some tool/application would work to dump some partitions, As I also said you I´m very incredulous how much you can expect from a software that come from a tool but without the tool, I mean you can get some software on the net that was made for some box/dongle but I don´t think that you get much only with the software without the box. And regarding QPST or some similar Qualcomm Downloader tool may I´m wrong but same way I don´t think that they can do much with it.
In download status a good and suitable tool can read absolutely all partitions just meeting the conditions of a stable connection and the sectors on the motherboard be readable. We can use as an example Miracle Box and there are more similar to it but again you would need the hardware to do the miracle.
Probably reading two times is better that asking two times cause the second answer can confuse you more than the first.
Really most of these questions were answered previously and I think no sense to respond the same question that in my vision will have ever the same answer.
Please don´t get me wrong, I really feel sorry for your situation but no one get help from a false optimism and keeping alive your hopes along a prolonged time just procrastinating the action won´t help you at all.
The next step for you is incredibly easy to walk and it doesn't matter if the final is good or bad if you do things right, you will be at peace so that it cannot take you to any other result regardless of your expectations.
A step not taken is just a wasted time...
I was going to answer your points individually but I gave it a shot, and I thought to report it before I forget or get lazy. Apologies!
I connected my device and 15 minutes later is appeared in Device Manager as Qualcomm 9008.
I opened QFIL (from QPST folder) and I was able to select my device. Did nothing more as I thought this was a god start.
Then I opened eMMC Software Download app, purely out of curiosity. In the beginning it didn't do this, but after clocking here and there, and eventually loading the software later in the evening, the icon changes with it now labelled with the port number along with Download Mode, thus COM10 Phone in Download Mode.
I click the browse button and this is happening. Either I didn't lave it long enough or it's stuck there forever.
If I close it and reopen it, it no longer does this.
EFS Explorer as I thought this is exactly what I need if I need to go through my device.
Repeating the same process as eMMC software, this one opens up like this.
I can select the phone and click Okay, but nothing happens. I even click the "Connect" button to try again but nothing happens. It still remains like this.
I hope this gives you more insight as to what is happening with me and my device. And as always I look forward to your thoughts, especially now after posting this!
