1. Which XML files? What are you trying to mod?

2. No. On Windows, official releases: "shell:appdata\Synthesia" and dev releases: "shell:appdata\SynthesiaDev" (You can type those into a Win+R "Run..." dialog and it'll open the folder directly.)

3. Hold your Shift key while launching the app. That should show a different window than usual. The "Open Data Folder" button there will do the same as the instructions in #2.
