There's no direct access to OT features in GIMP yet.

However you can use your system's character map or some sort of
advanced font manager to copy/paste glyphs.

For example, you can open a font in Fontmatrix (fontmatrix.be), go to
Glyphs view, enable copy mode (button in the bottom), then click on
glyphs to add them to the text field below, then copy/paste from the
text field to GIMP. You are likely to find at least some of the custom
glyphs in the Unmapped section in the Glyphs view.
