If you want to programmatically create orders in CRM you need to call the CRM web services API. This is described in the SDK, here is a link to the orders part https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/gg309346.aspx

Is that what you want to do?

Hi,

First, go through the tutorial on how to read XML string/file through C#.
http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/UploadFile/dhananjaycoder/reading-xml-file-through-linq-a-few-tips/
Find your attribute values/information from XML and store them in local variables...

Now, for plugin, go through these sample codes:
Use Entity class C# - https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-in/library/gg309731.aspx
Creare Entity Record C# - https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg328416.aspx
