Can “XML Import Module” in the VIP read CDATA (Character Data) elements from an XML page?

CDATA elements within XML files are just long strings of characters, not actual XML data. (CDATA = Character Data). The XML Module in the VIP cannot read CDATA elements. In fact, it can only read numeric elements, like <guid> in the example.
To properly read the info that's in the CDATA section, it would have to be first transformed into actual XML elements, i.e. with an XSL stylesheet.
