    If you talk about 64bit binaries on such an ISO: Not possible.

    If you do have the sources for the applications/libaries, then it should be possible to compile 32bit binaries.

    There is no specific guide.
    This is good old fashioned developer work.

    Other than that:
    Today´s hardware is 64bit. Why not just use the 64bit version you have?

    You can get some idea what is involved from looking at LFS ... expect it to take a while
