I'm trying to flash something a update.zip package that contains su and busybox programs, and I know what you think, I'm rooting a device.
I've googled and there's the adb shell and fastboot programs that can help me but, how can flash it by commands?
Copy pasting the updater-script commands and the busybox installer too?
Please help me out! D:

Question Install su by using "fastboot flash update.zip" without recovery ROM (CWM or TWRP)?
Similar for me.

I'd like to install su and busybox as well on my Lenovo A8 (A5500-F, A8-50) tablet with Android KitKat (4.4.2).
However there's no CWM or TWRP for my device and I read other tools do not work.

But can I install a file called "update.zip", containing su, superuser and busybox (and installation script) using fastboot?
Like: "fastboot flash update.zip" ?

Using a file like this one:

Any ideas if this should work?

No, that definitely wouldn't work. You have to have the bootloader unlocked and most likely if that was possible then there would already be a custom recovery for it...
