Yes, GTK+ 3.0 provides the ability to use a different style (such as
Adwatia Dark) for window decorations (and GTK+ widgets in general).

AFAIK that if the window does not have client-side decorations, it is
automatically converted to use them.

IIUC, this does not just implement new capabilities, but will prevent
Emacs from working at all on older systems.

Yes, but the function is not dynamically loaded.  This will cause symbol
resolution failures on older systems.

I wasn't trying to discourage the OP, just to help.
