This may be a one off kind of issue, but there are some weapons that were initially viable option in the normal Weapon Focus feat that were never assigned to a weapon group and thus cannot be selected when the Group Weapon Feats is enabled.

I am referring to those "weapons" that are magic or spell-based; i.e. rays and kinetic blasts.

I know rays are select-able, Not sure about blasts though.

Rays are covered. There's a separate feat called Weapon Focus (ray) for that.

However, you're correct: Kineticist blasts are not currently supported. I overlooked them. And here's a relevant bit of FAQ:

Certain special abilities (for instance rays, kinetic blasts, and mystic bolts) can specifically be selected with feats like Weapon Focus and Improved Critical. They still arenít considered a type of weapon for other rules; they are not part of any weapon group and donít qualify for the effects of fighter weapon training, warpriest sacred weapon, magus arcane pool, paladin divine bond, or any other such ability.
Furthermore, although ordinarily you wouldn't have access to things like Weapon Specialization and Greater Weapon Focus due to not having any fighter levels, the Elemental Annihilator grants you those as selectable bonus feats.

Yay, complications.

I'm tempted to just make a new weapon group called Kinetic Blasts and call it good, even though that does not honor the FAQ written above. That's probably the most straightforward solution. Otherwise it might take a custom feat chain that's just like the Weapon Focus feat chain, only just for kinetic blasts. I'd really rather not do that. It's clunky.

Let me mull it over a bit and get back to you.
