As I stated before, fmtutil.exe in W32TeX saves format
files in engine subdirs. However, there are no commands:

--enablefmt formatname
--disablefmt formatname

and there is no option:

I think they are not essential on windows.

Added option:
--engine texengine              (specify texengine)

If you allow the above defects, you can use fmtutil.exe in W32TeX.
In W32TeX, the texmf-tree for formats is $TEXMFMAIN.
I think I can change it if you tell me where it should be.

PS: I like
TEXFORMATS = .;$TEXMF/web2c{/$engine,}
