Re:  Using the value of the current attribute in select
There are (at least) two ways to do this.  First, you can save the
attribute value to a variable:

<xsl:variable name="colname" select="@name"/>
<xsl:variable name="fkey"
select="following-sibling::foreign-key[child::reference/@local=$colname]"/>

Alternatively, you could use XSLT's "current" function, which always
returns the node being processed by the current template:

<xsl:variable name="fkey"
select="following-sibling::foreign-key[child::reference/@local=current()/@nam
e]"/>
