To keep it short and sweet, I realised when you take the SD card slot, under the plastic cover there is a sim card slot. Theoretically, if I was to flash the tab s7+ 5G firmware and put the sim card in would it work?

Probably not. For two reasons:

a) The WiFi only version won't have the 5G antennas needed.
b) The 5G radios would have to be turned on at the chip level; meaning Qualcomm would have to do it. The radios are enabled/disabled at the factory (meaning Qualcomm), not by the device OEM.
