Perhaps you can contact the author? His e-mail address is at the very
bottom of the efiboot website. Perhaps the legal restriction he mentions is
that he cannot host his own Tianocore repository or something silly like
that. I recommend asking if he can release any individual CorebootPkg

Most people use SeaBIOS, which is an open-source implementation of legacy
BIOS. It can be compiled as an ELF image.

The efiboot webpage mentions some steps to create efiloader.elf, but as you
pointed out the code is currently unavailable...
