I have a Galaxy S4, rooted. And I really like the softkeys that the nexus has. Is there a way I can get them (without flashing anything) Like maybe an app or something? Thanks in advance.

You can use an app like softkey enabler, or a simpler way would be to edit your build.prop (softkeys are built in to all 4.x.x roms, touchwiz disables them) using a file explorer. Go to system/build.prop and copy/paste the following;

and they'll appear after a reboot.

I tried softkey enabler and it didn't work...is it safe to edit my build.prop

You can edit the build prop if you're on 4.1.x, but Samsung borked their updates after that. You'd need to decompile/edit/recompile your firmware...
