  the second question is. how can i tell it to begin on a new page after 
  each table?

you just have to insert appropriate properties into the FO tree.
<fo:table break-before="page">....

  the problem is, that after beginning a new table the position() seems to 
  reset to 0 ->

postion() is never 0, also it is a property of the current node list
not a property of the node in the input document, so position() always
relates to the Xpath used to select a node. Why is that a problem

oh you probably want something like

<xsl:for-each select="inventorlist[position() mod $n = 1">
 <xsl:variable name="x" select="position() - 1"/>
 <xsl:for-each select=".|following-sibling::inventorlist[position()&lt;$n">
 <xsl:variable name="x" select="position()"/>
    <xsl:value-of select="$n * $x + $y"/>
