    All it will be is slimmed down to cut the crapware and possibly drivers locked down so I doubt anything you can't do already with a bit of work.
    Power comes from hardware so I am already dubious.

    So if I wanted to use the WiGig dock with the XPS 9550, would that work if I changed to a different wifi card? If so, any recommendations for one?

    Which WiGig dock?
    You could try Intel 18260. With the additional 60GHz antenna.
    Mind wired USB3.1 dock have faster connection, let alone TB3.

    I think someone tried one of those and it doesn't fit due to the width of the card.

    ***edit, looking for the Intel 18260 on ebay shows a slimmer card than intel's site.

    I think tke previous gen was bigger, now they have an even smaller size. Must be 2230 size.
    One would also have to fit the antenna module somewhere.
