[xsl] Processing mutiple files in multiple directories individually

I am using XSLT 2.0.
I have several hundred XML data files stored in a number of directories each
with subdirectories of their own that descend to various levels. From them,
I need to locate 137 specific files and make editing changes to each. I
believe I can write the template that can determine if a specific XML file
requires editing or not, and if so to then apply the editing change.
What I do not know how to do is:
(1) search through all the directories and subdirectories and open each XML
file one at a time,
(2) if the file does not require editing, drop it and move on to the next
(3) if the file requires editing, make the editing change and write the file
out to its original location.
I suspect this is not that uncommon a task, but it is not clear to me where
to look for cookbook code to accomplish my goal. I am not even sure what
terms to search under. Can anyone help?
