    how can I build my own TeXLive Distribution scheme? 

I don't have a good answer for you.  (Maybe I'm forgetting something, in
which case I'm sure Norbert will correct me.)

The bad answer is, you can edit texlive.tlpdb and insert a new
scheme-grycman entry (the format should be obvious) which references
exactly the packages you want.

However, I don't see how you can eliminate all the non-{lua,xe} engines.
lualatex, for instance, is part of the latex-bin package, but that
package also includes latex and pdflatex.  To be honest, I can't say I'm
too enthused about slicing and dicing all this in yet another way just
so "latex" can be eliminated for you.

You might be better off installing everything and picking out what you
want at the file level.  I don't know.
