Re: is there a recent explanation of tricks you can play with MACHINEOVERRIDES?

Don't use _prepend but =. BEFORE the other includes in your machine configuration files otherwise the order in MACHINEOVERRIDES is incorrect. Do NOT use append, or .=, they result in incorrect order too.
I do use this mechanism because we kind of use Yocto machines the wrong way (basically using machines instead of distros or more complex images).
I think NXP is making extensive use of this variable by defining a MACHINEOVERRIDES per SoC families (e.g. imx:imx8:imx8mm).
I'm not sure we need to explain all possible uses of OVERRIDES variables, just how to set it and how it works.
Hope this helps,
