comment OS X: alias vs. symlink
In the Wikipedia article: "However, when using the shell command line, Mac OS X aliases are not recognized: for example, you cannot use the cd command with the name of an alias file. This is because an alias is implemented as a file on the disk that must be interpreted by Mac API while links are implemented within the filesystem and are thus functional at any level of the OS."

comment OS X: alias vs. symlink
It should be noted that aliases do not work as replacements for the objects they represent as well as symlinks do. For example, i can use a symlink to my Vim configuration folder as a NeoVim configuration folder, but not an alias. I cannot even inspect the contents of the folder referenced by an alias using ls <alias name>.

Good luck with debugging NixOS on MacBook :). If you do not have SSD and figure out how to configure the sudden motion sensor, let me know, please. (I have just added a remark about this to my answer.) I also seem to have difficulty with configuring the CPU frequency: even with powersave governor it gets quite hot for no apparent reason.

I believe i've read somewhere that it is not recommended or somehow not supported to have more than one EFI System Partition.

Alfredo, you are right, i didn't explain how i got the initial setup. I already had Apple EFI System Partition, which, i believe, all computers like mine have pre-installed. I will be surprised, however, if it matters how that partition is created. Are you sure you have set the correct partition code EF00? I used gdisk to manage my new partitions. I have made an edit to show my partition table.
