There are many different kinds of pilates machine, but the one you're probably thinking of is called a reformer. Here's a link that shows how a reformer is put together.

I can see where you might be able to hack a rower into one of these, but I'm utterly mystified how the stair stepper would figure in.

I thought I could use the stepper for stability and to attach the elastic bands from to use in an overhead action.

Why don't you sell the stuff you've got and buy what you need?
