Is it possible to get from an XML file an object with properties in PowerShell? And then I would like to take this object and insert it into a SharePoint List. Is this possible? Should I write my powershell within VS or is the PowershellGUI good enough?
How to make this connection?

First off, powerGUI is much better IDE for Powershell than VS.
Could please give us so more information, what version of SharePoint are we taking about 2010, 2007/3.0
to get an XML object in Powershell from a XML file is ez
[xml] $x = [xml] $(gc "FULL PATH TO XML FILE")
gc is alias for Get-Content
$x will become System.XML.XMLDocument object
from here to get into SharePoint list it all depends on SP version.
2007/3.0 I perfer to use the list services via the New-WebServiceProxy cmdlet as it can run remotely and not on the SP server.
For 2010 try this link
