Could your reprecise the context because it's not cristal clear to me. Basically You want to automatically lay out external files inside an indesign document, am I right ?
If so, you could probably get this without any line of scripting with a bit of xml layout preparation inside indesign. However if you want to go scripting, you may as well achieve this without any xml at all (or using it conveniently).

Yes, I'm creating many InDesign files which I want to pull together depending on which pump range & pump model it is.
I've just found reference to XMedia UI plug in file but can't seem to locate it.
It mentions a Cross Media Publishing Resource CD but I don't have that as I have access to InDesign through CC via enterprise from our organisation.
Have you any ideas?

XML import should work without any additional plugin. Once that said the learning curve may be tough. If you can afford it, I would recommend a plugin such as EasyCatalog because it's easy, efficient and smooth.
If you still want to go on the xml road, you may want to read the Bible of InDesign XML import:
It will learn you all you need to know as it did for me
Thanks for your help Loic. I will look at both options. I'm determined to master the XML side of it if I can :-)
