What's a good plugin to upload a .xml file? here is the final question for now.. under

Tools: / Import: / WordPress i get this message:

Howdy! Upload your WordPress eXtended RSS (WXR) file and we’ll import the posts, pages, comments, custom fields, categories, and tags into this site.

Choose a WXR file to upload, then click Upload file and import.

Any ideas what i need?

You need an export from another WordPress blog. That's what the import tool is for.

If you're trying to import from another blog format to WordPress, look at this list of possibilities.
