Not sure I understand the requirements completely, but given your
input, the following does produce the desired output.

---------
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
  xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" exclude-result-prefixes="xs" version="2.0">

  <!-- standard easy-to-write identity template -->
  <xsl:template match="@*|node()">
    <xsl:copy>
      <xsl:apply-templates select="@*|node()"/>
    </xsl:copy>
  </xsl:template>

  <!-- process a heading that has an @id specially: -->
  <xsl:template match="Heading[@id]">
    <xsl:copy>
      <!-- first, process my attributes -->
      <xsl:apply-templates select="@*"/>
      <!-- then, copy over desired <ToRef> -->
      <xsl:apply-templates
        select="../../Item/Heading[ not(@id)  and  @entry = current()/@entry  and  @data eq current()/@data ]/ToRef"/>
      <!-- last, process my children -->
      <xsl:apply-templates select="node()"/>
    </xsl:copy>
  </xsl:template>

  <!-- ignore <Item>s that have <Heading>s from which we already took the <ToRef> -->
  <!-- (Note that this code does not check to see that we actually took or will -->
  <!-- take the <ToRef> ? rather it just tests if there is no id= attr, and figures -->
  <!-- that if there is not an id=, then the entry= and data= must have matched. -->
  <xsl:template match="Item[Heading[not(@id)]]"/>

</xsl:stylesheet>
