This is a list for GNU Parted, not gpart.  Gpart is a
partition rescue program ;)  You've come to the right place,
anyway :)

The first 2 goals is possible, but not 2. or "if this is not possible.."
Problem: the / partition is "surrounded".  Partitions have to be
continuous.  In this case, there doesn't seem to be an easy way around
the problem.

Have you read the Parted documentation?  There is a section with
examples, which should explain this fairly well.
