IDA Pro 7.2 has a new functionality named force new variable. See: Here and Here.

But it is only efficient for stack-based variables. How can I force a new variable for a register-based variables?

You can't, not as a standard command that's currently available through the user interface, anyway. Force new variable only works for stack locations. Perhaps a future version of Hex-Rays will allow the user to force new register variables.
