You can not use variables in match expressions in XSLT 1.

However you appear to be confused:
> However xsl:variable is a node set and not a string
Variables may contain either node sets or strings (or other things) but
your variable
> <xsl:variable name="SystemSelected" select='"sys:one"' />
contains a string.

Without seeing your source file it's rather hard to guess what your
intended processing is, but possibly something like

<xsl:template match="xs:documentation">
   <xsl:when test="lang('de') and *[name()="$SystemSelected]">
