I manage to make this code work. Please see attached updated patch.
But this patch is not completely ready as it missing compilation conditions.
Just hope you find it useful.

I see same result as in the first case: Desktop, empty blank space
with Emacs menu, space with Emacs frame and no menu/titlebar.

Still can't make this case work. Probably window animation stand in the way:

nsterm.m  : 1869: [  376]  ns_set_parent_frame
nsterm.m  : 1912: [  377]  | child frame must not be in fullscreen
2019-07-17 21:20:49.027 Emacs[91925:3597098] not in fullscreen state

If ns_set_parent_frame is called while window is still in process of going
full screen then maybe it must be deferred until animation ends.
