I can: it's the sgml-mode that comes with Emacs.  PSGML shows "PSGML"
on the mode line.

So I think what you should do is:

  . start Emacs
  . type "M-x load-library RET psgml RET

Then try visiting your XML files and see if things work better now.
If they do, I suggest to add this to your init file:

  (autoload 'sgml-mode "psgml" "Major mode to edit SGML files." t)
  (autoload 'xml-mode "psgml" "Major mode to edit XML files." t)

(These two lines are from the PSGML manual, which comes with the
package; did you read it?)  This should cause Emacs to use PSGML for
sgml-mode and xml-mode, and you should see what you were used to see
in Emacs 25.
