  Hopefully you have checked the existing examples.

I want to use a xsl style sheet to change a part of the xml that is
specified with an xpath expression.

  XSLT is not defined to work on a subtree.
      well ok.  but how about if you just grab the subtree, set it as the root
element in a new document, and then xslt that?  Then take the result and
toss is back into the original document.  voila!  xslt on a subtree!

  Well, what about the id() lookup, does it work ? If yes how is it defined ?
It's just one example of many little things which can go wrong with an
half baked approach like that.
  I think not changing the document but applying the stylesheet templates
for that given element and cocllecting the resulting nodeset would be
a more well defined approach.
