I noticed that once the frame is upgraded to a rear shock like the fox x2, the adjustment button is blocked by the frame and cannot be adjusted, so the solution is to cut a hole for the frame?

Nope, don't want to do that as you'll weaken the integrity of your frame.

What type of mount is it?

As you could possibly flip the orientation, if that doesn't work you'll need a shock that'll fit.

This is an Enduro Frames with 170mm rear wheel travel, the rear shock of this frame is mounted upside down, you will understand if you look at the photos I just uploaded in my album, the previous owner installed fox x2 rear guts and opened holes in the frame, later I replaced the original dps

Okay, looks like a bushings or bearings mount.

I would have tried flipping the orientation before frame modding, as it looks as though that part of the frame is load bearing.

I think it can't be turned over, because the rear shock is using the trunnion mount, so it can only be installed upside down

I looked at the photo and sure enough, they've drilled a bonus stress raiser to provide access to the damper controls. I have no idea how dangerous this is but it's definitely not something I would have done.

Edit: Corrected per Grumposaur's post below. At least there's much less cut out than I thought.

I looked at the photo and sure enough, they've cut out a significant portion of the lower shock mount plate (and just for good measure, drilled a bonus stress raiser) to provide access to the damper controls. I have no idea how dangerous this is but it's definitely not something I would have done.
That hole is added:

Not something I would drill there so close to that edge...But hey, if it worked for a while, it has been proven in practice I guess?


That asymmetric cutout appears to be stock:
