I am really interested in learning the "boot" sequences of Cygwin EXE/DLL and how they get written into the binaries. Documentation in this area seems very scarce.

you should look at the patches for GCC included in the source package
code. You can download it with cygwin setup, just click on the "Src ?"
column for the gcc row. It will be put in "/usr/src"

There are no patches for binutils/ld for what I see on its source
