I managed to find the node (Actuator) I want in the original (Station_3) xml document, now I want to copy or import this Actuator node (with its children) to the new (Station_Actuators) xml document for further manipulations.

Hi Mus'ab,
In my understanding you were able to retrieve the Actuator node along with its children. If yes, you can make use of the xmlwrite function to create a new XML file. Please refer to the link below:
If you are looking for ways to retrieve the node along with its children you may have to use methods defined by the World Wide Web consortium. For instance, getElementsByTagName, getFirstChild, getNextSibling etc.
Please find the links below to help you get started:
Thank you, Adithya
