It a nutshell, what you ask in your last sentence can't easily be done.
It would be cheaper and more reliable to sell yours and buy an XT, before trying to upgrade yours into an XT piece by piece.
2003 Outback wagon: "Kaylee". 156,000 and counting.
Mods: 2004 Forester XT shift knob, Fumoto oil drain valve, Phillips VisionPlus H1 low beams, Phillips 9011 HIR1 high beam upgrade. Also: More rust than I care to think about.
2002 L.L. Bean 3.0 Outback wagon: 101,000 and counting.
Mods: Scangauge II, Fumoto oil drain valve, otherwise bone stock for now with a bit of fixing up to do.
