Is there a way to create a Gentoo minimal iso with UEFI support?

I know how to create a custom systemrescuecd, but it would be nice to have everything in "official" installation way. Don't know if the files inside the iso differs.

Actually, systemrescuecd, is as official as they come.
Gentoo minimal cd is a bit too minimal to be useful. You can use any livecd you want (or even whatever distribution you have already installed around) for installation process, none of its code goes into the final gentoo instance. And the one you named is often recommended, since it supports more hardware than minimal, provides more utility value, and as it is basically gentoo live, we are all familiar with it.

This said, you obviously can repackage minimal cd with a modified kernel. There is just no point in doing it other than making an exercise in creating liveCDs with UEFI support out of it.
