I'm not sure if I understood your question correctly, but let's hope so. :) You can't compare Reason and GPO directly. GPO is a sound library. GPO isn't a sequencer program, where you can make music inside the program, like reason is. GPO doesn't include piano roll or any other things to make a song withing it.

Instead, GPO is like a ReFill. In fact, there will be a GPO ReFill for Reason, so you can buy GPO as an extension sound library to your Reason. This will provide you with much better orchestral instruments as included in Reason by default and you can load GPO's orchestral instruments just like you load them from the Reason library at the moment and add them to your song.

You can listen to demos made with GPO at www.garritan.com. These demos are made using GPO as a VST/AU-instrument but GPO Refill will probably provide very much the same functionality and sounds as the VST/AU-version.

Someone, please correct me if Refill is out already, but I'm assuming it's still in production..?

Just a quick question. is it possible to use GPO as a stand-alone programme or do u need to have a sequencer eg. cubase, protools, etc to use together with it.

GPO could be used with only a computer and keyboard, where you would play GPO instruments live.

GPO is normally used with a sequencer by most of us. You mentioned a couple of the better known, and more expensive, ones. There are reasonable, lower cost alternatives if you're interested. At one point Traktion was free (Traktion 1), check that out, or follow the trail to other candidates.

it includes Piano Roll?

You get a scaled-down version of Cubase with GPO which has piano roll editing capabilities.
