I once added some methods to the GDAL SWIG Java interface but I can't remember how I did it. The only thing I remember is the pain in the neck.

Yes, it seems like it is possible to create the VRT Dataset using the generic API up to the point where we you cannot enter the band "SimpleSource" or "ComplexSource", so maybe those two functions would be enough. Let me see what I can do with SWIG.
The VRT driver is the usual solution to a lot of problem but we cannot automatize the solution on environment other than C/C++ or command scripts. But unfortunately, even if we add those two function much of the VRT magic is still not on the VRT code but in gdal_translate.cpp .
