Thought I´d ask for your expertise, folks.
Is there a speedlight that gives me FP synchronisation with my F100 while having a normal/rear sync switch for my F4?
Thanks for your help.

Yes, the SB-25 and the SB-26.
My old reliable SB-25 does allow for rear/normal sync with the F4 at the sliding of a switch on to flash. And also FP with my F100.
What one needs to do for FP with these two is:
1.- Mount the speedlight on the camera.
2.- Turn both the camera and the speedlight on.
3.- Slide the upper right switch on the SB-25 to M (should show on the LCD)
4.- Slide the upper left switch to Normal
5.- Confirm ISO speed and zoom head position according to lens (do not use a wide panel)
6.- Press M in the rear of the flash until a 1 or a 2 appear.
7.- Choose a speed from 1/250 to 1/4000 on the F100
8.- Set aperture for the lens, in the camera
9.- Focus on your subject/compose/confirm aperture
10.- Shoot! (Unless you are using a non-D lens; if this is the case, you will have to set the "aperture value" manually in the back LCD panel)
Have a great time :-)
