A mapplet can't be used in another mapplet.Because if you try to drag and drop one mapplet from the left hand side under the mapplet subfolder to the mapplet designer workspace it won't allow you to do so, but if you try to drag and drop one mapplet to one mapping,i.e., in the mapping designer then it comes to the workspce.This means a mapplet can only be used in a mapping but can't be used in another mapplet.That's why mapplet is known as the reusable form of mapping.

A mapplet can't be used in another mapplet .Because if you try to drag and drop a mapplet from the left hand side of the Mapplet subfolder to the mapplet designer workspace it won't allow you to do so. But if you try to drag and drop a mapplet to a mapping in the mapping designer its only possible.It clearly indicates that a mapplet is created using the mapplet designer and it only can be used in a mapping not in another mapplet.That's why mapplet is known as the reusable form of a mapping.

The Normalizer transformation can not be used in Mapplet, it is correct, but we can use the joiner transformation as we can devide the the flow and later on we can joined them. I have Implement the same in my project.

Normalizer transformation
XML source qualifier
XML files
Other targets.
If
you need to use sequence generator transformation use the reusable sequence gen t/r
If
you need to use stored procedure transformation, make the stored procedure type as normal.
