How would that have worked?
Basically just swap Maz with Boba. It would be kind of an interesting idea if in their old age Han and Boba had formed a mutual respect, and Han has to ask for his help. (Lando also would have been good in this role.) Instead we get someone who we are told has a past connection with Han, but we never really saw. I just feel like it would have been more impactful if there was a real connection there.
Some kind of reconciliation between Han and Fett would be quite a stretch, considering what Fett did to him, how stone cold Fett appeared to be, and how they didn't really have a relationship to begin with. Also, having him run his own cantina would be weird. Boba Fett is the mysterious black hat villain in a western. He's not the type of character who would run his own neutral watering hole. He's not the type to run anything really. He's a free agent.
And of course, it would not work at all to have him be the one to introduce Rey to the force.
