The problem is that the first 'when' always turns true. So all files are
processed using the first argument. I tried testing for the other type
in first place and got the same result: The test I place first is always
true even if I made sure that in the documents to be processed the
things I test for are exclusive. Type B doesn't have a stylesheet
attribute and type A never contains 'Mag' in title.

There must be a syntactical error or am I using this at the wrong place?

Well inside of an xsl:template match="filesystem" the expression
gives you a sequence of document nodes of all 'file' child elements and that way

checks whether there is a link rel="stylesheet" element in at least one of the files referenced by all the 'file' child elements of the 'filesystem' element.

So you probably rather want e.g.

<xsl:template match="filesystem">
  <xsl:apply-templates select="file"/>

<xsl:template match="file">
<xsl:when test="document(.)/xh:html/xh:head/xh:link/attribute::rel[contains(.,'stylesheet')]">
<xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="neuerTest"/>
<xsl:when test="document(.)/xh:html/xh:head/xh:title[contains(.,'Mag')]">
<xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="someOtherMode"/>

<xsl:template match="file" mode="neuerMode">

<xsl:template match="file" mode="someOtherMode">
