Uhh....well, I don't really know for sure but...

I think there might be a way to install XMMS into you home directory. Try looking around for "Install Path" or something like that in the docs.
BTW, if you were to do that the directory you would use would be something like /home/user_name/bin

After that you'd have to tell XMMS to use a different plugins directory than normal, eg, the one in your /home.

NOTE: This is only my guess. I don't know how XMMS really works put it's pretty customizable and it might have a way to do these things, and it might not.

Best of luck,

Yes u can. Its fairly straightforward.
Download xmms source, install in home directory by doing
./configure --prefix=/home/xyz
make
make install

Roughly- check the README/INSTALL files for the exact procedure.
