A reputable company can they can plug and redrill.Actually they can do the complete job of converting the Focus hubs and rotors to 5 lugs the only downside is when you need new rotors you will have to have another set pluged and redrilled.I had Moser redrill some 4 lug rotors to 5 lugs and make custom 5 lug axles a few years back worked out great.

Converting 4-lug to 5-lug is really not that hard are expensive as long as you can live with the drawback of not being able to get new rotors at the local parts store.

Here is a link to the service they offer and prices .

they wouldnt convert to 4 lug but i'll bet you could get them to swap to a 4x100 pattern that would certainly open up options since its civics run and they have god knows how many different wheel options

This is a different critter. We probably have enough material in the hub to drill a new set of holes with 4x100 spacing. I have not 'laid it out' but just in my mind it says it would work. You should have this checked by a qualified machinist.
