But even if Canon is not going to make one, I am sure some third party companies from China which will make one with some sort of hacks to do it mechanically and electronically (umm, I have to correct myself here, there may not be vertical controls in this case if there is no contacts inside the battery compartment).

The contacts will be a definitive answer, but even if they existed, 3rd party grips for R mount bodies dont seem to exist for some reason. Even for bodies that have been around for a few years now.

That was the case for quite some time, until this 3d-printed battery grip only appeared for the EOS RP (which has no contacts):

More recently some conventional models are being sold by various independent sellers, such as these:

As well as taking 2x Canon batteries these have a vertical shutter release which uses a cable plugged into the camera's remote socket on the end.

Either of these types could theoretically be made for the R7 and/or R10, as long as they find some way of containing the fixed battery door.
