Swimlanes by custom issue type?

There is currently functionality to set swimlanes by epic/story - but we have created some custom issue types that allow us greater flexibility and a better view of what is going on across the board.

It would therefore be very useful to be able to apply a similar swimlane to boards based on a custom issue type - is this possible via JQL without having to specify every single specific issue?

You'd need a custom swimlane JQL for each issuetype, separately.

The other options in the drop-down selection are coded into Software individually, there's no way to add any sneaky things into there without code.

absolutely. simply select Queries and construct whatever JQL you want, e.g. issuetype = mycustomeissuetype

I essentially want to mimic the "Epic" behaviour from the dropdown but to my custom type, not all of the issues of that type in a row - sorry for not being clearer

not possible w/o customization of code.
