Guacamole supports the "RemoteApp" parameters for RDP, which allow you to
publish applications on a Windows Remote Desktop system and then create a
connection that runs that application without anything else (desktop,
window manager, etc.).  Windows Server provides the method for publishing
remote apps - the Enterprise versions of Windows 7/10 require that you get
a separate utility to configure the RemoteApp applications, but it's pretty
easily available.

So, if that's what you're looking for, Guacamole can support making those
connections.  However, XenApp (and VMware Horizon) go a step further and
make the application appear to be seamlessly running on the local desktop.
Guacamole will not do that out of the box, although it's probably not
terribly difficult to port the Guacamole Web App to NodeJS and accomplish
something similar.
