    With regard to your second question it should have been phrased "does php support XML?"

    Answer: yes

    Search for xml at www.php.net

    regards

    As I understand it, XML doesn't interact with anything. XML languages are primarily data languages, and applications have to be written to interact with them. mjpbrennan is exactly right in this regard.

    I'm not personally aware of any XML-based databases, though I do believe there are a couple out there.

    The Software AG have developed a product called Tamino, it's essentially a XML database. Will cost you some money though, but perhaps someone dedicated has made a similar open-source product. Try to google for that.
