I'm not familiar to quantum gis, so can anyone explain if it is possible to import/export xml files in quantum gis? If it is possible, how can I do that?

I exported some . xml recordset and workspace files from ArcGis and I'm curios if I can open those files in quantum gis.

I use Arcgis 10.1 and Quantum GIS 1.8.0

ArcGIS xml is not a valid data source for QGIS and so you can't import or export it. KML, a variety of xml, is. My thought is to use Python to parse your xml into kml(s) files. QGIS GDAL/OGR could convert that to whatever you like, for instance Spatialite or PostGIS.
