You need to use tools for the EFI stuff. Look for insydehacks. The
provided fvdump takes out the firmware volumes, but only if they are
16-byte-aligned, which they are not. I think you need to cut 8 bytes in
the beginning to get the right alignment.

You probably need to compress them with the Intel Tiano compression
stuff. Source code for compression and decompression functions is
available in the EFI Development Kit, but that kit is not designed to
build on Linux.

To know that you have to analyze the current ROM contents or the update
