I'm not 100% sure what you want to do, but I *think* the following
will put you on a path to get you there. If not the best path, at
least a path.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="";

  <xsl:param name="XX">oops ? you forgot to supply an XX</xsl:param>
  <xsl:param name="YY">oops ? you forgot to supply a  YY</xsl:param>
  <xsl:param name="VV">oops ? you forgot to supply a  VV</xsl:param>
  <xsl:param name="WW">oops ? you forgot to supply a  WW</xsl:param>
  <xsl:template match="@*|node()">
      <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()"/>

  <xsl:template match="A">
    <xsl:copy-of select="@*"/>
      <xsl:when test="@name='a'">
        <xsl:attribute name="test2"><xsl:value-of select="$XX"/></xsl:attribute>
        <xsl:attribute name="test3"><xsl:value-of select="$YY"/></xsl:attribute>
      <xsl:when test="@name='b'">
        <xsl:attribute name="test2"><xsl:value-of select="$VV"/></xsl:attribute>
        <xsl:attribute name="test3"><xsl:value-of select="$WW"/></xsl:attribute>
