I don't know if it is a coincident but your timing to share these info is 
directly connected with my problem.
I am presently trying to collect some live iso in my usb stick and like to call 
those by grub2. gparted is one of them.
I have in mind to use gparted iso but you have already mentioned that it can't 
be. Is there any other work around within grub to cope with these type of iso ? 

Thanks for sharing
