Doing a ISO with molecule

I'm testing in VirtualBox SL with LXDE for a computer with low resources, and I want to do a ISO with all my custom changes. I don't like how LXDE iso in repo is done, no direct login in LXDM and other things aren't configured. I did this in others ISO with a script adding the config files in the chrooted, but here my question: is posible to do this like adding a custom package in the list of packages to add? are there an easy and different way to do the folders with the files and add them to the ISO?

There is this for example:

You can cp files/folders over, but you can't touch the users home directory. The skel files setup the home directory.

Thanks for the answer.

Yes, I know this and is the way that I did the ISO's. I know that the live ISO create an user with the skel files. My question is if there are a way to do a package with all custom skel or backgrounds and add them to the ISO like the others packages from a local folder?. I guest that this is not posible because the packages come from the repositories...

I don't see why you couldn't just tar up the files, cp it over and than have it extract it all to the proper paths.

I don't know if molecule could work with a local repository.
