That means you have to generate an input field as part of the HTML page you
are generating.

That means you have to write JavaScript code that deals with the input
entered by the user into the HTML input field, and supply it as a parameter
to another XSLT transformation that transforms the original XML file into
the modified XML file. You don't explain your system configuration, but it's
probably simpler to do this second transformation on the server.
