If I read the question correctly - you want to connect to a SQL database from Salesforce with Apex using credentials stored in an XML file.

Given that interpretation, then no, you can not do it. Apex can't directly callout to your SQL database.

If you want to integrate with external data in Salesforce you will need to work with a web based API. It could be REST or SOAP based.
