Question Isolinux

Can isolinux run bin files. I know that it does with isolinux.bin but what about other bin file like bootsect.bin of ERD Commander or ...differents.
Is it possible to set it up on isolinux.cfg like: Label ERD, Kernel xxx, Append /ERD/bootsect.bin ???

Yes, all the files in /bin and /sbin (and the like) are binary files, they just aren't labeled as such. Linux does not rely on file endings (such as .exe and .bin) like Windows does. Linux will not run binaries that were made for Windows, however, unless you use WINE or something similar.
