Well, the required udebs, iso-scan and load-iso, are architecture 'all',
so maybe you can copy them manually and 'udpkg -i <filename>' them.
You should run in expert mode, so you can select them from the menu
instead of the CD-ROM related steps.
If you want a look at the source, see the d-i subversion repository
Building hd-media for ARM would require changes to the configuration of
the build system. I'm unsure what exactly would be needed for that.

Same disk is no problem, but same partition is: the partition to which the
system is installed should normally be formatted and should be unmounted.

Not all initrds use cramfs, some use ext2.

The monochrome problem has been shown before.
