Thanks Michael and George for your answers.

I tested some things, but could not find out if I can insert and delete. I
haven't found something within the Oxygen XML Editor, and I do not want to
ask for another trial version of stylus studio if I am not sure, it helps
with that.

Clearly the process can't be automated. But the visual mapping tools in
products like Stylus Studio, where you define the input and output schemas
and then generate an XSLT transformation by drawing lines from one to the
other, work particularly well when the two schemas are very similar.
