Install dmidecode for MacOS from http://cavaliercoder.com/blog/dmidecode-for-apple-osx.html by running:

brew install cavaliercoder/dmidecode/dmidecode

Then run dmidecode -t system and dmidecode -t baseboard to get values for DmiSystemVersion and DmiBoardProduct below. Then customise the VM's CPU identity sets and DMI data.

VBoxManage modifyvm "MacOS Mojave" \
  --cpuidset 00000001 000306a9 04100800 7fbae3ff bfebfbff

VBoxManage setextradata "MacOS Mojave" \
