    Are you sure it doesn't work if you just extract the save file contents and put them back into the PAL save? You can do this with Savegame Manager GX or Dolphin Emulator easily.

    With Dolphin Emulator you simply import both saves into Dolphin, then it will be placed under Dolphin/User/Wii/Savegames or something similar. Then you copy the files from the NTSC save into the PAL one and extract the save from Dolphin making a new .bin file. If you want a standalone program for doing it, there's FE100: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/FE100 but it's a lot more complicated to use than Dolphin.

    Savegame Manager GX can export the save in extracted format I'm pretty sure, so you can just export both saves, and copy the files from the NTSC save into the PAL one as above, then import the PAL save with Savegame Manager GX again.

    It's different for every game, but that sounds right since the banner.bin is there.

    I'm no good at step by step instructions, you simply have to do what you just did with both versions of the game save, and copy all those extracted files from the extracted US save into the EU one, then use Savegame Manager GX to reimport it or use one of the other tools like i mentioned.
