you can do like this. xsl:for-each select="item[position() ...] and
xsl:if as you have mentioned would produce the same result.

I would prefer item[position() ...] as it looks more cleaner, and
perhaps more efficient (am not sure..?)

XSLT doesn't have notion of variables changing the states. So
something like above will not work with XSLT.

you can use patterns like tem[position() ...] or perhaps use recursion
sometimes, to iterate specific number of times.
