I've bought Xenoblade Chronicles from the Wii U eShop, but try as I might, I can only choose between either the Gamepad or a Wiimote. I have the Wii U Pro Controller and I'd like to know if I can use it with Wii games bought from the Wii U eShop.

No, you can't.
And that has actually technical reasons. Even the gamepad support got hacked/patched in, which is why it's limited to Wii games bought on eShop.

You can however connect a Wii Classic controller to the Wiimote and play using that one. I also have no idea why you don't want to play with the Wii U gamepad. That's the primary controller for the Wii U.
