Specific second display query
Have upgraded the RAM and SSD on my iMac thanks to iFixit! All I'm missing now is ability use it as a second screen to my tiny PC laptop, following home working move.
Having seen posts for years that without Target Display Mode it can't be done (but also seen posts also referring to screen-recycler and also network sharing from a PC).
So I want to move past TDM as clearly there are options and to find out what possibilities there are for a working iMac be best used as an extended screen to a PC. Or failing this, at least mirroring as large monitor?
Any help greatly received

Unfortunately those tutorials likely required jerryrigging the entire insides to not actually make it a functional computer anymore. I know this for my 27" 2010 imac that is sitting broken in my room as i type this
I'd say: If this is your workstation (But considering it's dual core chip i don't know if it's still worthy), then use that pc laptop separately. Personally i prefer to either have a thin and light and then an attachment that makes it workstation class or have a thin and light and a workstation to go between the two. Unfortunately i don't have either of these setups to test but I reckon these are best. Of course the 20" imac is very unique so i can see why you want to keep it's internals.
What Laptop model are you running atm?
