Please correct me if wrong:
I am having a similar issue. However I'm using the fitted values from
a first step nl regression and using them as instrument for the
endogenous in the second step (see textbook Cameron & Trivedi, 2005
pp. 193). The problem is the correction of se in the second step.
Either you cumpute the V correction manually (not sure if there is an
appropriate package?) or use bootstrap.

My question:
Could this also apply to the case of an ordinal endogenous variable,
since what is used is a linear projection?

Many thanks,
