If you want to use C++ for scripting, take a look at Jason Turner's ChaiScript

3) Similiar to 2, but use more common scripting languages: chai, cs-script, sol2 (c++ framework to embed lua)
ArkScript, a language designed to be used in C++ projects, now has macros

A few years back I actually went and made a ChaiScript based video game engine (https://16bpp.net/blog/post/masala-a-chaiscript-game-engine/). The end goal for it was to be able to make a Pacman like clone, but have all of the game logic implemented in ChaiScript. I actually found out as I added more realtime elements (implemented in ChaiScript) that it started to take much longer to process the game logic; the "game loop FPS" was under 60, which is not good. I actually proposition that ChaiScript move to a bytecode VM (https://github.com/ChaiScript/ChaiScript/issues/266), but I'm guessing that no movement was made on that front.
Is it advisable to embed python in c++ ? Have anyone tried it, what is the best way to do it?

Maybe ChaiScript? It is not exactly what you are looking for, but very similar, in my opinion.
What are some alternatives?
Lua - Lua is a powerful, efficient, lightweight, embeddable scripting language. It supports procedural programming, object-oriented programming, functional programming, data-driven programming, and data description.
V8 - The official mirror of the V8 Git repository
squirrel - Official repository for the programming language Squirrel
Wren - The Wren Programming Language. Wren is a small, fast, class-based concurrent scripting language.
sol2 - Sol3 (sol2 v3.0) - a C++ <-> Lua API wrapper with advanced features and top notch performance - is here, and it's great! Documentation:
Cython - The most widely used Python to C compiler
CppSharp - Tools and libraries to glue C/C++ APIs to high-level languages
