What are the chance of a Nikon to 4/3 version that transfers the electrical contact like MetaBones have done for Canon?

Don't hold your breath, they haven't done it for Canon yet.

We're STILL waiting for the EF mount-MFT speed booster. The only way you get EF to MFT on focal reducer is to buy other company's adapters.

Your best bet is to practice manual focus techniques. It takes some time, but is very effective when you get used to it.

I am better at holding my breath than manual focusing.

That's good because it's going to be a very long time...as in, "never going to happen."

If I have not learned how in 60 years, I probably never will.

60 years of shooting autofocus only?  Impressive, considering it was introduced in the mid-70s! 

Besides, I like AutoFocus. All my Nikkors are AF-S and all my lumix are AF.

It is also why I sent back my SpeedBooster, but

I would like to use some wider and faster lens on my GH4.

AF on wide angle lenses isn't a big help because you're very often at infinity anyway.  AF at very wide aperture settings can be problematic with many m4/3 cameras because of the difficulty of precisely controlling the focus point.  Not sure about the GH4, but with the EM5 manual focus using the EVF magnification and IBIS is pretty easy to do.
