Is there a change to have the implicit and explicit exchange rates to
handle my current problem ?
Or it's a current real limitation on GnuCash ?
I suppose i am not alone to have different bank accounts with different
currencies (USD and Euros) and handling stocks on both bank account
with different currencies ?

Your Euro bank account can only handle Euro transactions. You can't
translater between Euro, USD, *AND* a stock in one transaction.

You should get the exchange-rate dialog.

Gnucash does not handle implicit exchange rates, which is what you're
asking for. GnuCash also does not handle explicit transaction
currencies, which is also what you're asking for.
