Don't know anything about Xenserver and any differences from "plain Xen" in

OK, there's your first mistake - unless you have a rather unusual setup then 
you do not need VLANs and your networking will not work if you try.

To achieve what you want is simple :

Define a bridge :
auto br0
iface br0 inet static
  bridge_ports eth0
  address 162.x.x.13
  gateway 162.x.x.1

(I think you already have this)

That will get your host online, plus it will create you a bridge (virtual 
network switch) you can connect your DimUs to.

Now in your DomU config, define one virtual NIC connected to that bridge. In 
the DOmU itself, configure the NIC to have a fixed address as provided by your 
ISP - basically configure it as though it was a standalone machine connected to 
the ISP (the Dom0 doesn't really play any part in the networking other than to 
run the bridge).
