I'd like to enable the 6.1 kernel for x86

There are only a few patches for x86, if I generate a default config, and modify the Makefile to enable experimental kernel, what else do I need to change to experiment with this?

You need to generate a default config both for x86 and 64 subtarget, and copy the patches respectively (while removing the unnecessary 5.21 backports etc.)

And declare the testing kernel.

But x86 looks straightforward.

Look through the closed PRs of the last couple of days for a starting point.

What is the make target to create these?

I think I updated the default one with make kernel_menuconfig but how can I do the one for 64?

EDIT: https://github.com/openwrt/openwrt/pull/12982 but it was not without problems...

There's already a functioning distribution with 6.1 kernel: https://github.com/coolsnowwolf/lede
