I yet have'nt found a ideal timeline of what happened, namely Zeal palace never falled, Lavos did not controlled Queen Zeal, Schala is never put in these Sheninganis, The gurus are never Sepaired in time. In general Most events never happened of both CT and CC.

This is a non-answer because I am boring and have no imagination, but---
I think you answered your question, haha. I'm not sure if it can be defined without abandoning the stories of CT and CC. Outside of New Game+ (or grinding practically forever--so, outside of just taking the video game mechanics to some kind of extreme), the party is totally unable to withstand Lavos's attacks. If you defeat him there, you get the special Developer ending, breaking the fourth wall and so breaking the story.

Certainly Lavos being defeated at the Ocean Palace would be quite the change to the timeline. That said, short-term it's possible things might not change too much. No Lavos, no power source for the Mammon Machine. I believe it was Lavos' energy that enabled them to lift Zeal into the heavens in the first place, so... Zeal will still fall, sad to say. Even if not, they had already switched to using it to power up whatever kept the islands afloat. So unless they could quickly switch back to the planet's energy... they will still fall. Considering stuff like the Sun Stone were sealed away, not to mention, needing to know to take them out again... yeah, there's no time. The only plus side for those at the Ocean Palace is that there's no longer a hurry to leave now. Although they will still need to deal with Dalton afterwards.

So ironically, it might not be too different from the original timeline.
