What would it take to create an unofficial 32-bit version of Loki?

A lot of work without using our existing build infrastructure.

What would be the steps required to build it from the source?

Again, a lot of work and fiddling. I don't believe there are succinct instructions anywhere.

What would be missing or non-functional?

Nothing, so long as everything is built correctly, all 64-bit things should be portable to 32-bit.

If someone provided an ISO, would it be made available on the website?

No. elementary are perfectly capable of making a 32-bit build, but any 32-bit only computer is not going to run the system very well. This is a council decision and will not sway because a community member has built one. It would remain an unofficial build, and directly calling it elementary OS would likely infringe on trademarks.
