I assume you are aware that 2.3.X is unstable and there are no
guarantees about data loss.  That said, if you open your XML file in
gnucash 2.3.8 and choose "Save As", you can select sqlite.

What platform will you be doing this on?  On windows, the setup.exe file
contains everything you should need.  On linux, you will need to set up
some packages besides just gc 2.3.8.
