A simpler solution if you (rhet.) just want to run a command
automatically in gnome-terminal and then wait for more commands, is,
instead of starting "bash" (or $SHELL) by default, specify that
gnome-terminal should run the command:

bash --rcfile <(cat ~/.bashrc; echo "some_commands")

That would run "some_commands" as part of the shell initialization,
though it wouldn't wait for confirmation or line editing and it wouldn't
print what you're running without also doing some explicit echo/printf
or set -x.

Kind of a confusing way to do things, but it could get the job done.
