If I have the real Apple wifi/BT BCM94360CD card for Handoff in Yosemite (which I do) and get a mini PCI-e adapter for it (which exists here: http://www.amazon.com/Generic-Mini-Adapter-Bcm94360cd-Bcm94331cd/dp/B00NQAXDW8), will it work in the Z97N-WiFi's mini PCI-e slot? Thinking of shrinking down my Haswell Hack which has this card into a mITX setup, but I don't want to give up the "real" Apple wifi/Bluetooth to do it. Otherwise with my graphics card I'd have to go mATX.

I believe you can get an adapter for that card that will work in a Mini PCIe slot, but it won't plug in directly. That would leave your PCIe slot free for your graphics card. Here are a couple of links:

BCM94360CD with Mini PCIe adaptor and necessary USB cable:

Mini PCIe adaptor only (would still need to source the USB cable):
