My question number 1: Do XSLT processors cache external
referenced XML files?

Probably not, but obviously it depends on the processor. However, most
processors allow you to preload the document from the calling API. You may
find it better to supply the lookup document as the value of a stylesheet
parameter; if you do it using the document() function you can implement a
URIResolver or equivalent that maintains the cache.

Or you could implement the lookup in the URIResolver itself:


then you don't need the lookup document or use it to configure the resolver.
