I want to load end games into GNU chess so as to practice the endgames.
Anyone know how to do that?

GNU Chess doesn't have any sort of endgame database to practice against.

You'll hve to set up specific positions you want to test.

Use the edit command or you can use 'setboard' to enter a FEN string of the
position.

I assume you aren't using a GUI interface but trying to do it with its text
interface.
