SQL Query CASE statement in SELECT

I have two problems and I believe it has to do with my query in the CASE statement. First one is how to get the parname value to show up in my parname without having to add it in SELECT, because if I add it in SELECT as a column, my xml output is messed up. Second is how I can tweak my CASE such that the group GID element is present only when parname = setgroup.

My table:
MODNM | CARNM | PARTID   | PARNAME  | SEQ | TYPE | VALUE                     | FLAG
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
M-880 | HONA  | 29000153 | SETGROUP | 1   | A    | 3                         | P
M-880 | HONA  | 29000153 | *CDMZI   | 2   | A    | F%+A8E=,,,0;+MS=V123,456; | P
M-880 | HONA  | 29000153 | DMTZ     | 3   | A    |                           | P
M-880 | HONA  | 29000153 | CDRFCP   | 4   | A    | 0                         | P
M-880 | HONA  | 29000153 | SETGROUP | 5   | A    | 15                        | P
M-880 | HONA  | 29000153 | #PT      | 5   | 6    | NONE                      | P
M-880 | HONA  | 29000153 | CDH6     | 7   | A    | 100.111.100.44            | P
M-880 | HONA  | 29000153 | CDEPORT  | 8   | A    | 9003                      | P
