Ok, I stumbled upon this but here it is and I provide no warranty for any of this. You do this at your own risk!:

Requirement: Bootloader unlocked, Rooted, BACKED UP PERSIST.
Following this guide: https://www.xda-developers.com/enable-google-stadia-any-android-smartphone/
Open MagiskManager and look for the MagiskHide Props Config module.
Install and reboot
  1. Get to ADB or term and type:
    Code:
    props
  2. Type “4” to add/edit custom props.
  3. Type “5” to add/edit custom props.
  4. Type “n” to add a new custom prop.
  5. Type “ro.product.model” to set this prop.
  6. Type “in2025” to set it as the value for “ro.product.model“ (or your proper region)
  7. Type “y” to accept the prop change.
  8. Type “y” to accept the reboot.

You should now have photochrom!

Confirmed too on my IN2020, this is great (Art)work, kevkid, thanks!

Just one small thing; I had to clear camera's cache and storage data to finally have photochrom option appear. Without this final step, it wouldn't. Seems obvious but maybe not for everyone, so you may want to add it as a final step in your instructions maybe.

Also had to use an adb terminal emulator Android app, and not computer's adb terminal, to have access to the props through that module and be able to edit them.

Wish there was such an easy way to get back to Widevine-L1 after bootloader's unlocked...

To undo the camera changes and change back the model no back to default. Try this
  1. Get to ADB or term and type:
    Code:
    props
  2. Type “4” to add/edit custom props.
  3. Type “1” to select the ro.product.model prop.
  4. Type “r” to reset custom prop.
  5. Type “y” to accept the prop change.
  6. Type “y” to accept the reboot.
