easy. Try to do the following:
open a buffer in LaTeX mode
got to the menu (the one at the top of the screen, not the toolbar of  
the frame: LaTeX
go to Customize AucTeX
expand the menu
TeX Command
TeX Command List
click on "INS" to create a new entry
Name: XeLaTeX
Command: %`xelatex --synctex=1%(mode)%' %t   (use this if you have  
MacTeX 2008 which includes SyncTeX)
oterhwise use: %`xelatex%(mode)%' %t
Value Menu: TeX-run-command
check the boxes for modes: LaTeX, ConTeXt, AmSTeX
Save the settings
You now have a new entry in the Command menu which runs XeLaTeX

Good luck,
