Hey - actually I was able to successfully achieve more or less what You seem to be trying to achieve.
My goal was to create a precompiled, fat test jar that won't download all dependencies from nexyus on each maven test run. All the test code together with dependencies and source code is packed as a single jar using "maven-assembly-plugin".

I've used the given configuration descriptor: 
<assembly xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/ASSEMBLY/2.1.0"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/ASSEMBLY/2.1.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/assembly-2.1.0.xsd">
<id>fat-tests</id>
<formats>
<format>jar</format>
</formats>
<includeBaseDirectory>false</includeBaseDirectory>
<dependencySets>
<dependencySet>
<outputDirectory>/</outputDirectory>
<useProjectArtifact>true</useProjectArtifact>
<unpack>true</unpack>
<scope>test</scope>
</dependencySet>
</dependencySets>
<fileSets>
<fileSet>
<directory>${project.build.directory}/test-classes</directory>
<outputDirectory>.</outputDirectory>
<includes>
<include>**/*.class</include>
</includes>
<useDefaultExcludes>true</useDefaultExcludes>
</fileSet>
<fileSet>
<directory>./suites</directory>
<outputDirectory>./suites</outputDirectory>
<includes>
<include>*.xml</include>
</includes>
<useDefaultExcludes>true</useDefaultExcludes>
</fileSet>
</fileSets>
<containerDescriptorHandlers>
<containerDescriptorHandler>
<handlerName>metaInf-services</handlerName>
</containerDescriptorHandler>
</containerDescriptorHandlers>
</assembly>

Then, I've created my own Test Runner that creates a new TestNG instance inside the main method. 

I think that should be a good starting point for Your further investigation.
