What is missing here is detailed instruction on how to use these files to create a single, physical, holdable-in-hand artifact that can actually be used to boot the system without any "coding", i.e. without the knowledge of the gory details and esotheric configuration languages used by bootloaders.

I am assuming you are referring to USB.

For BIOS: The easiest way to do this would be to install Syslinux onto a USB drive and create a simple Syslinux configuration that loads ipxe.lkrn.

For EFI: Format a USB drive with FAT32 and copy ipxe.efi to /EFI/Boot/BOOTX64.EFI (this is much easier than the BIOS way).
