To compute the total dos you just perform an nscf pw.x calculation with an n1xn2nx3 grind in the Brillouin zone. To compute the DOS at specific k-points you can perform the nscf
calculation at specific k-points in the BZ (e.g. re-diagonalize the Hamiltonian at just one k-point), followed by dos.x.
Or, if the k-points you are interested in are included in a previous calculation, you can use projwfc.x with the variable kresolveddos set to true (see PP/Doc/INPUT_PROJWFC.txt)
