Actually this is solved by the GXT. You can now have 10 presets with a firmware update and select them by foot. I use it live all the time between songs. Press and hold-toggle to preset you need-press and hold. Done. Works great! From the user manual:

“If you only need to access your two favorite sounds in performance, tapping the A/B footswitch will toggle between them quickly. If you would like to access more presets with this footswitch, hold it to enter Preset Select mode. Now, pressing the A/B button cycles forward through the five “A” preset settings or “B” preset settings, depending on whether an A or B was loaded when you held the footswitch.”

Does the Harmony GXT pedal do anything to the guitar sound or is it all just for vocals?

Been a while since I've played with mine, but if remember correctly, the guitar can have reverb and detune if the guitar and vocal are mixed to the XLR output jacks. If the 1/4" thru is used to go to a separate effects/amp the guitar sound is dry (no reverb or detune).
I had been using a Fishman LoudBox Mini with this and as it has its own reverb and chorus, the 1/4" dry output worked fine. If you're sending vocals and guitar to a powered speaker via the XLR you can mix in reverb and detune for the guitar. I kinda recall getting the detune required some extra button pushes which I never could remember.
