They're pretty much both 'gold standards' as far as road clincher tires are concerned, But in my experience the 4000s is easier to get on the rim than the 5000.

Bar end shifters are designed to fit into road drop bars, which have larger grip diameter than mtb/cruiser bars. So they might not work.
I think the MTB thumb shifters are your best bet.
