          You can use the "importXML" method to import XML file into Indesign, on importing the XML would be displayed in the structure pane.

           

          How the content of XML is placed on the document depends upon how you want it, you can do it either manually or automatically.

           

          As regards to HTML, i don't think there is a direct way to import it into Indesign, you would be requiring some intermediate tool to convert HTML to XML that can be imported and placed into Indesign.
