    You can use DISM to integrate alot and add/remove features dism /image:mountfolder /get-features and you'll see..
    About chrome, hm all applications, sure you can sysprep it and use anarethos tool and create a recovery partition..

    You should read some more about setupcomplete.cmd appintegration and other stuff, both here and at msfn.org

    Not really, but check msfn.orgs board for unattended installs, they have some stuff.
    Also read more about sysprepping:)

    I think for most programs (especially non-microsoft), it's the easiest to let the installer run after install with an unatended file (by this you can easily opdate the iso by just replacing the installer exe with a new version). You could also install it, see what files were written/changed, and what reg values are added, and manually a those to install.wim.

    Personally I'm not a fan of sysprep, as I believe the image is never going to be as clean as without any install, running sysprep or not.

    And as tcntad said, the real experts are at msfn.org.
