I installed the S screen in my 5DsR from focusingscreen.com, no problems at all. It comes with some shims in case focus is off. While I agree that the post-5D2 focus screen situation is lamentable, there are workarounds.
5D2 full spectrum, 5DsR, a bunch of Zeiss (some other) primes, for documentary natural history, macro, and micro.

The only problems is that different screens can affect the metering. The camera's meter is in the prism which is post screen. The 5D2 and 6D have options in the menu to adjust the meter in darker conditions according to which screen is fitted. The 5D3/5/SR don't have that menu option.

...
 but there are 3rd party screens available (e.g. focusingscreen.com), and you can DIY the replacement although it's not as simple as popping the screen out and in.  ...
I got the Ec-B Focusing Screen from them for my 7D (also non user replaceable screen). They have very detailed replace manual and send tools for the job. It took me 10 minutes to replace, 7 to get over the initial fear, 1 to lay camera, tools and screen and 2 to do the job. easy (once you get over the fear of opening screws in the camera).
7D; 8-15mm f/4L Fisheye; 100mm f/2.8L macro; TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II; 24-105 f/4L; EF-S 10-22mm; 70-300mm f/4-5.6L; Milvus 50mm f/1.4, 600EX-RT & ST-E3-RT; lots more stuff.

Any idea of the type of focusing screen Canon 5d Mark IV use? I managed to scratch it a little bit (nothing important) and wondering if I could replace it?

How about using +1/3 exposure compensation, or is it -1/3, anyway, whatever corrects the error. Not too hard to remember? 🤔
