Yes, you can use ANT_OPTS environment variable:
export ANT_OPTS= "-Xms256M -Xmx512M "

No, if you use ANT_OPTS.

Actually, there might be a problem with your xsl
transformations, for example some inefficient
operation. The xslt task itself is not resource-hungry
it just starts the transformation. Usually, it is
adviced if one encounter such an error to revise her
xslt, but I am not very much XSLT literate
(unfortunately), so I know no starting points to do
