Same way as any other value:
<xsl:call-template name="f">
	<xsl:with-param name="x" select="document('abc.xml')"/>

Or you can apply templates to the result of the document() call, though it
is usually better to pass the document element rather than the root node
(because it's easier to match that in a pattern):

<xsl:apply-templates select="document('abc.xml')/*"/>

Using the union operator:

<xsl:variable name="$a" select="$b | document('abc.xml')"/>

Of course you cannot "append" in the sense of updating a variable in situ.
(unless you feel like using <saxon:assign>, which this community regards as
a crime almost as bad as using IE5)
