Answer is yes, using lxml (or BeautifulSoup):

this isn't the cleanest code in town, but it uses lxml to parse XML

Yes it possible,it depend of the HTML is already generated and have a server running.

Here a example that parese XML and generate HTML using jinja2.
I use jinja2 with Flask(jinja2 is build in) for sending stuff from server to HTML.
jinja2 can also work alone as shown here.
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
from jinja2 import Environment, FileSystemLoader

xml ='''\
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<note>
  <to>Tove</to>
  <from>Jani</from>
  <heading>Reminder</heading>
  <body>Don't forget me this weekend!</body>
</note>'''

# parse
soup = BeautifulSoup(xml, 'xml')
mes_from = soup.find('from').text

# Generate html
# test.html
#<h1>{{ message }}</h1>
env = Environment(loader=FileSystemLoader('templates'))
template = env.get_template('test.html')
output = template.render(message=mes_from)
print(output)
Output:
<h1>Jani</h1> # If remove .text from parsing <h1><from>Jani</from></h1>
