I made a post about re-ordering things in grub2 a while ago [0]. The
code snippet might need a little tweaking to work with newer Ubuntus,
but maybe it will help anyway.

If the problems you have with your boot menu are caused by specific
scripts in /etc/grub.d you can disable them individually by removing
the executable bit.

If you want to add static parts to your menu you can put them in
/etc/grub.d/40_custom (if you want custom parts before the
autogenerated Ubuntu kernels you could copy 40_custom to 07_custom and
put your stuff in there, but then you'd lose automatically updating
entries for the default option).
