How would I create reports using XML the same way one would use MS Word VBA? What tools (non third party software) or other languages do I need to achieve the same result?
If your data is tabular, your best bet is to cross-translate to CSV and use all the existing reporting tools that understand tabular data. If you data in hierarchical, declarative options range from XSLT on one hand through to XQuery on the other. For imperative programming similar in level to VBA, I would recommend Python/Jython which has excellent XML support.
