Is there a way to get hardware Synths Voices/Sounds into Logic 9? I know in Cubase you can add a Device via XML is there a similar feature in Logic 9. Thanks in advance for your help.

If you are asking how to get patch lists into Logic, sadly, it's clumsy. Ideally, you will have or be able to acquire a list of all patches for the device, sorted in patch number order. If not, you'll have to build one. You'll want a good backup of the most current copies of each of these lists.
Open Logic's environment and create or use multi-instrument for the desired device.
Double click it to open the patch list. This will be pre-filled with the GM list most likely.
Paste the list of patches copied from the master text file list replacing what's there.
Set custom bank-change messages as needed, and set patches for each bank.
The docs go into more detail on creating multi-instruments, setting custom bank change messages, etc.

Good luck.
