FZ1000: BBF, spot metering, AE-Lock?

I am comfortable using BBF (AF/AE Lock button set for BBF.). However, there are situations in which I want to use BBF and have the exposure set by spot metering before the release button is pressed.   For example, I'd like to maintain proper exposure for someone's face using spot metering when the subject is only part of a total scene. I think it can be done by doing BBF and pressing release halfway while in spot mode (for exposure), and then recomposing and press button all the way.  But, I don't want to hold the release button.  I have done a bit of reading on this, but have found it confusing and would appreciate if you could simply outline the settings on my FZ1000...I assume I'll have to set a Fn button to lock in AE. Thanks.
