1. -gllamm- allows for weights to vary both within and between panels.
Of course you'd want to use -xtreg- to provide the starting values.

2. Nonlinear constraints make any model extremely complicated. However
you might be able to rephrase your model with additional variables and
linear constraints among coefficients.
