Ground control pro and PX-8 plus

I want to move my rig to a rack mounted setup but, have some questions.

I think the GCP and PX8 are the best 2 pieces to combine for a flexible rig for myself. I'm all about fail safes and I think that would give me an instant fall back plan if the GCP were to give out mid show (not saying it would but, people spill beer on my board all the time) I could just pull my board out of the rack and use the PX8 to run my pedals.

So, heres my rig.
Shure GLXD wireless/tuner, Xotic SP, EP boost, wah, Dr Z Z-drive, empress tremolo 2, boomerang e-155 (chorus and delay unit)(stereo out of that) amp 1 is usually a Dr Z Maz 38. Amp 2 is often a Carmen Ghia but, changes a lot.

So, the tremolo 2 and the E-155 both have midi inputs and outputs. The E-155 has 12 banks. Each bank has one chorus preset and one delay preset.
The trem 2 has 8 presets.

Is there a way I can set the rig up (atleast when I'm using the GCP) to midi switch the trem and E-155 AND still have enough contolability to run the rest of my rig?

Also, is this over kill? Would i be better off with just going with the PX8 or the GCP and GCX?
