virt-manager uses libvirt.

libvirt talks to the Xen hypervisor, xend etc directly itself.  I
thought that recent versions of Xen don't use configuration files any
more -- I could be wrong about that.  But in any case, there is no way
that I know to get to the Xen configuration, and you shouldn't need to.

You can get the *libvirt* configuration by doing:

  virsh dumpxml NameOfGuest

You can also use 'virsh' to do everything you could do with 'xm'
commands.  Let us know if find an 'xm' command that has no 'virsh'
equivalent.
