If goto_page is a nodeset then you just need to do
<xsl:apply-templates select="$goto_page"/>

If it is a string then you need an xxx:evaluate function (xxx depends on
your processor)

You could also use this templates, but they split the path:

 <xsl:param name="goto_page"
 <xsl:template match="pages">
  <xsl:param name="page" select="substring-before($goto_page,'/')"/>
  <xsl:apply-templates select="page[@id=$page]">
   <xsl:with-param name="passed" select="$page"/>
 <xsl:template match="page">
  <xsl:param name="passed" select="''"/>
  <xsl:param name="next"
   <xsl:when test="not($next)">
   <!-- page found -->
   <xsl:comment> Just arrived to page </xsl:comment>
   <xsl:copy-of select="."/>
   <!-- continue the searching -->
   <xsl:apply-templates select="page[@id=$next]">
    <xsl:with-param name="passed" select="concat($passed,'/',$next)"/>
