Is there a way to set uefi_boot=True as the default, replacing BIOS? Or how can I create a VM clone or template that has that set so that when I create or have a user through SSP create a new VM that is already configured as UEFI instead of BIOS?

What requirement is driving you to want to UEFI boot everything?
In general, most people only UEFI boot for VM's that were previously EFI enabled prior to migration, when migrating from another platform, such as Gen2 hyper-V VM's, or EFI enabled VMware VM's.
Are you not seeing that same clone behavior?
As for making it default, pinging engineering now, I'll see what they say.
As for API request, how are you requesting and provisioning VM's now? SSP? or some other system like ServiceNow? I know you mentioned SSP, but your API / posh comment got me thinking
What did they say? Can it be set as the default for new VMs?
Even if our VM templates and Disk images are UEFI-enabled, when provisioning a VM via the Self-Service Prism Central UI, the user is prompted to select a Boot Configuration with options listed as:
We don’t want our users to have to select UEFI for every VM. I was told that we cannot change the default selection to UEFI and that does not provide a good UX.
