-gllamm- estimates a very general model which includes as special cases
multilevel/panel models for various types of dependend variables, and
structural equation models. So you probably can use -gllamm- for the
combination of both, which seems to be your problem. Anyhow this is
discussed in: Skrondal, A and Rabe-Hesketh, S. (2004) "Generalized
latent variable modeling: Multilevel, longitudinal, and structural
equation models" Chapman & Hall/CRC.

Hope this helps,
Maarten
