I will divide my answers to two aspects:
1. Put the file on the iSeries IFS.
Putting the file on the iSeries can be done via FTP or even NFS mount, the iSeries can act as a FTP server and NFS server. Please note that in FTP you may choose correct name format to send the file to the IFS as follows:
ftp > quote site namefmt 1
2. Parse the XML
This can be done via Java classes that are fully supported on the iSeries with a product called XML extenders (available starting from V5R1), or you can use the XML wrapper that can be found here.
