That's something I've seen requested on various forums a lot, so here it is: a mod that allows anybody to adopt a vassal or courtier as their child, and to disinherit any of your children. All available in intrigue menu. (that's a bit messy interface - if someone has a better idea that doesn't require a lot more coding, please tell me)
AI never does either of these things, so they're player only.
Requirements for both are simply being adult male. Characters only agree to be adopted if their opinion of you is at least 50, and they become part of your dynasty as well (but their children stay old dynasty). Disinherited children still remain part of your dynasty, and can still inherit from their mother.
This basically means that you get to choose whoever you want as your successor.
This minimod is asking for some culture restrictions, opinion modifiers etc. from all that, but I'm leaving it bare-bones so that it can be compatible with pretty much all other mods including most total conversions.
Other game rules still apply, so oldest child (biological or adopted) is the main heir, except for born in purple and similar stuff.
This ability is extremely powerful, so don't overuse it. Oh and if you adopt a few dozen children at once that seems to freeze the game, probably due to too many sibling events triggering.
Here's download link. Have fun.
