import gbXML to most programs

If I write a gbXML "by the book". Let say by hand. With all the gbXML conventions will it be imported easily into programs like designBuilder, OpenStudio, EnergyPlus Etc?

Do I need to make sure for any aspects? Cane you point me to the best documents to learn the language as it will serve the most fit for those programs?

Am I just being stupid?

That is exactly the intent of gbXML! If you write a gbXML file by hand that conforms to the schema you should be able to load it into most supporting tools (as long as they support the version of gbXML that you are authoring). There is a lot of good links if you scroll to the bottom of including a validator test suite that you can use to check that your export of a particular test case model is correct.
