From what I remember (and I have tried it again just to check), the ux2 and I think most other similar devices, only allow mic +mic, or mic and instrument input.
I've just realised that you are talking about gearbox. I haven't got gearbox running so I am not sure about it but I am fairly certain the inputs are the same as Pod Farm
Options could be to get a transforming box to change the mic signal to line level and put it into one line in and the boss into the other line in, although you might be running the boss into left and right line ins? Therefore it wouldn't work unless you went with one channel only from the boss.
Another option would be to get some box which changes the line level of the boss down to instrument level and run it into the instrument input. Mic and instrument inputs work as dual tone.
Or you could convert the line level from the boss to mic level.
Or the instrument output of the boss to the instrument input of the ux2.
This page gives a bit of an explanation of the differences:
Here's an example of a thing that converts I think line level to mic. I don't know your mics specifics etc. but I think this might be ok...I haven't tried these...maybe best to have a look round or ask a shop what is best for converting line to mic (if you want to go line to mic).
I hope this gives you a few options to consider.

+1 to hulbert.
Unfortunately you as soon as you select Line1 or Line2 on the UX2, it disables the mic and instrument inputs.
You could run the Boss into the Guitar Pad input of the UX2, this input is attenuated, just keep the Boss Master level very low.
Technically you could go into the normal Guitar input also, as long as you watch the levels coming out of the Boss.
