I'm trying to dissect FP over UDP, but this process needs some extra information. So, I added an *.xml to save the information, but I don't know how to read an *.xml file in Wireshark. How can I accomplish this?

Look at packet-diameter.c and the related files in /epan. You should probably look at using preferences instead, possibly with an UAT table. Look for other source files using UAT:s (grep). Another posibillity is to create a heuristic FP dissector using the header CRC then create GUI code to fill in the missing information via some sort of "decode as" functionality.
