yeah, you can do that by using replace text processor with

search value property as

<details>\s*([\s\S]+.*)\n+\s+<\/details> //capture every thing enclosed in details tag as capture group 1 

then in replacement value

<details>
${filename}
$1
</details> 

you can customize the replacement value as per your needs.

Replace Text processor Configs:-

input:-

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<service>
  <Person>
  <details>
  <start>2017-10-22</start>
  <id>*******</id>
  <makeVersion>1</makeVersion>
  <patch>patch</patch>
  <parameter>1</parameter>
  </details>
  </Person>
</service> 

output:-

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<service>
  <Person>
