I really doubt that NSS does not have a function to load a cert from
a pem file. And if so then you might want to ask NSS guys to add it.
Most of the examples for xmlsec are based on the keys and certs in
the files. I would suggest to think about finding a way to support this.

> xmlSecX509StoreAddCertsDir

All these functions are about loading keys and certs into keys and x509 
certs manager.
And they call each other.
