If I understand your question, I don't think it can done directly.  This is
because in xslt, imports and includes of other stylesheets have to be done
before anything else happens.  You couldn't do that based on information in
the source xml file, during a transformation.  If you knew what transform to
run, you could include it in the main stylesheet and run it on the other
external file using document().  Again, if you need to specify that in the
stream, it doesn't seem possible.

It would seem that you could use the information from the source file to
build a stylesheet - using xslt, of course - that would include the right
transformations to apply to the external file, then run the second
stylesheet on the source.  That ought to work.
