Well, firstly, I'd put the XML data into an XMLTYPE, or at least a CLOB.

Secondly, your problem is going to be creating a PDF file. To the best of my knowledge there's no way to do this from within the database (unless someone knows of a 3rd party Java class for doing that sort of thing). If you use Oracle reports, you could create a report that produces its output as a pdf and run that. If you've got a reports server set up, then you can use utl_http to call the report from within pl/sql too.
