This is already possible in Do. Just has a different name.
Enable the Window Manager plugin in preferences. Then you can see new actions for launchers (that it can match), one of which is 'Focus'.

I don't think it can give higher/lower priorities to Run and Focus based on if the app is running. It definitely doesn't do that now, but I am not sure it even could do that. At any rate you can type 'firefox' <tab> 'focus' and get it.
