Both of these programs:

You could create a button that starts gzdoom and uses mouse functions to drag the other programs to it.

However, it seems gzdoom accepts command line parameters to start. ... n_of_ZDoom

This may work
{run A:\Games\gzdoom-4-7-1-Windows-64bit\gzdoom.exe,A:\Games\gzdoom-4-7-1-Windows-64bit\DOOM2.WAD}

Not exactly sure how to add the 2nd file but it seems just a space as a separator
{run A:\Games\gzdoom-4-7-1-Windows-64bit\gzdoom.exe,A:\Games\gzdoom-4-7-1-Windows-64bit\DOOM2.WAD A:\Games\gzdoom-4-7-1-Windows-64bit\steve_flashlight_2018.02.12.pk7}
