No this is not what xetex is about. You can in a xetex document type
in an € and get the correct output. But you can also define a
command \def\euro{\char"20AC}  and then type \euro.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\begin{document}
\def\euro{\char"20AC} \euro
\end{document}

You could also use a teckit-mapping to transform a latin input into
a cree output:
