You'd use mkisofs.
Run 'man mkisofs' for a description.
Say that I had a directory called "foo" that I wanted to add an iso 
called "foo.iso".
I would run 'mkisofs -o foo.iso -R -J ./foo'
To mount the iso I just created to a directory called "mountpoint" I 
would run
sudo mount -t iso9660 foo.iso ./mountpoint
