This is a simple example. you may prefer to use the feeder plugin which 
provides more flexible facilities for embedding RSS. See

It sounds like you need to start at the basics. In order to work with 
sitemaps you need to understand the sitemap language. Start here

If you are still having problems after reading that then ask again.

However, it is worth noting that if you use the feeder plugin (see 
above) then you don't need to touch the sitemap.
