I own an E-M1 and an X-T1. I'll probably sell the E-M1, but it's not a clear choice.

Pixel binning and whatever else it's basically the equivalent of what happens when you stack images to produce a better result,

No, they are not equivalent. Pixel binning trades resolution for reduced noise. Stacking does not.

except you'd probably get a better result with image stacking...

That's for sure.

the denoising, that is another issue on itself....

As already pointed out, pixel binning is a form of "denoising" (applying NR to a shot).

which is excessive and you can't really get around it either which leads to "plastic skin" and "water colours."

Yes, that's the problem with X-trans.
