Alternatively, allow users to choose the folder where binaries are residing (similar to Windows).

I would avoid this, looks very odd for a Linux user. Executables are always in $PATH.

A way to choose between grass70 and grass72 (or any future G7 version) would be important.

GRASS GIS 7.0 and 7.2 are compatible in terms of flags and parameters, so no issues expected for the module definitions in "Processing".

Is there any chance that this could be back ported to 2.18?

I tried to apply the diff provided by J. Fischer but it doesn't patch against 2.18.4.r51.ga7f92bd89d

+1 for backport, also to 2.14 as long as this is LTR.
