Re:  Replace nodes in xml file
I think, the following XSLT transform may work for this problem description:

<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"

  <xsl:output method="xml" indent="yes" />

  <xsl:variable name="confDoc" select="document('config.xml')" />

  <xsl:template match="node() | @*">
      <xsl:apply-templates select="node() | @*" />

  <xsl:template match="element/*">
    <xsl:variable name="replc" select="$confDoc/config/element[@name =
current()/../@name]/*[local-name() = local-name(current())]" />
    <xsl:copy-of select="if ($replc) then $replc else ." />
