Will Haredis be willing to accept Reform/Conservative conversions?

Honestly, it'd be for the best if they did, and if anything, not be hostile to their wishes to pray at the Western Wall:
The State of Israel may officially recognize certain conversions carried out by rabbis affiliated with the Reform and Conservative movements, with the consent of the haredi parties.

The Conversion Committee, which was formed by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, is expected to submit a bill to solve the issue of the recognition of conversions performed in the diaspora during the Knesset's summer session.

According to information obtained by the Behadrei Haredim news website, under the bill, the State of Israel would recognize conversions from a well-established community with a Jewish "identity."

"A well-known Jewish community is a well-established and active community with a common and well-known Jewish identity, with permanent frameworks of community management and belonging to one of the recognized streams of the world Jewish population," the bill reportedly states.

Many Reform and Conservative Jewish communities would be included under the above definition.
Well if the Haredis do respect their wishes, it's about time, because they're giving a bad image to themselves, and the best way to deal with a sect you disagree with is to just ignore it. Besides, all the attention they drew to themselves with their horrific attacks on the Reform/Conservative sects (my grandmother was part of the latter) may have actually increased the numbers of the sects in Israel. Which goes to show if the Haredis are going to be loose cannons, they'll only get the opposite of what they want or not. So they'd best shut up already.
