If you are looking for an easy to use designer you can try XF Designer from Ecrion.
It should be pretty simple to use and is good for flow content (also WYSIWYG).

If InDesign PDF is better impressive, I think it will be better convert XML
to PDF go through InDesign. But it will take more time to convert compare
than XSL:FO PDF.

A quick summary, I think, would be that XSL-FO is focused on the flow 
of content while InDesign is focused on the page.

Quality varies based on the vendor, not on the technology.  With 
XSL-FO rendering I see quality differences between free and 
commercial XSL-FO engines running the identical XSL-FO instance.  The 
commercial engines I've used are very close and are practically 
interchangeable, but the free engines don't compare.

I've seen some impressive output from InDesign, but I wouldn't want 
to use it on the project I did for 3 million pages of paper in a 
single run (60,000 customized 50-page booklets).

Because the two technologies address different user requirements, I 
think it is impossible to answer your question.  Use whichever 
technology meets your needs.

I hope this helps.
