My attempt:

If you were a billionare, I'd love to be your best friend.
Perhaps:

Now that I know you're a billionaire, I am your best friend (smile required hereEmotion: smile)

Neeraj, I agree your sentence is correct. However, I am looking for something that has more impact to the listener - a strong sentence.

Hi New2grammar

First of all, to me, your sentences are grammatically wrong. They should be as follows:

If you were a billionaire, I would be your best friend.
If you were a billionare, you would be my best friend.
Is it ok to say the following?

If you are a billionaire, I'd like to be your best friend.

New2grammarIs it ok to say the following?

If you are a billionaire, I'd like to be your best friend.

Can you say "If you are a king, I'd like to be your loyal servant." It is hypothetical, isn't it?
Can you "If I am a millionaire, I will hire a chauffeur and have many servants to serve me"? Shouldn't it be "If I were a millionaire, I would hire a chauffeur and have many servants to serve m."?

I guess it depends on the situation. If the speaker thinks the person he/she speaks to is likely to be a billionaire, the sentence doesn't need to be hypothetical. For example,

Joe: Gentlemen, do you think it's worth investing five hundred million in this failing company?

James: That's what I have in mind

Joe: Well, if you are a billionaire I don't see any problem. And I'd love to be your best friend!

Please correct me if I'm wrong
