    Do in conductor (like Cu wire) have electron holes, like there is in the semi-conductors?

    No, a conductor such as copper does not have holes. Electrons can freely travel through a metal because the outermost shells of the atoms merge to form a continuous "shell," the metallic band, to provide a path for the electrons.
