After some searching in the internet, I was not able to find any answer (while you can learn that the ZWNJ, unicode-point 200C, is entered by shift+space).

a) either you can use a keyboard map that has these characters
(or create yourself one) or b) you can use something like 
\def\zwj{\char"200d} in your XeTeX source file...
