First it would seem useless or not necessary but soon this becomes clear. 1) It would help programmers debug their code easily and help them find out that the bug's not in the constant,

A reasonable type checker will detect cases where typing.Final annotated bindings are reassigned.  For example, with mypy: https://mypy.readthedocs.io/en/stable/final_attrs.html

If mypy is not catching cases of rebinding, then that would likely be treated as a bug by the maintainers.  If you want help with debugging code, then a type checker will help with that.

that's for sure. 2) This would allow another branch of OOP programming to enter Python. Read-only member variables.

see above, this is already  provided by mypy

There are Private members in Java and C++. But I believe they are not their to hide things. They are there to debug.

There are private methods in python too, just not enforced by the runtime, instead enforced by the myriad developer/debug tooling out there in the form of linters/checkers.
