How do I stop the wic generation process including the FAT formatted “boot” partition?
This depends on the wic (.wks) file you are using.
I have been using the default one (sdimage-bootpart.wks)?

What is the best strategy for partitioning / formatting / mounting the second partition as /home?  Should it be part of the image build process or a one-time task run at first boot?
Use --exclude-path and --rootfs-dir flags in the .wks file.
You can look at my example, where I extract one subdir from rootfs (/storage in this case) on a separate partition.

I have created a “wic” directory in my custom layer and copied sdimage-bootpart.wks into it as sdimage-project.wks without making any changes but “wic list image” throws an error with the new .wks file:

UnicodeDecodeError: 'utf-8' codec can't decode byte 0xb0 in position 37: invalid start byte
