Have you seen this, this, and this?
You're off the mark in that re-amping typically doesn't involve first processing a signal using an amp simulator (in your case, Guitar Rig) and then feeding the processed signal into a real amp.
The essence of re-amping is simply to record the unprocessed DI'd guitar sound (typically alongside a mic'd cabinet), so that later you can do what you like with it.
If your friend uses the XT Pro when he plays live, then I would suggest that he use that when you record together. I note it has a connection labeled "unprocessed guitar out" on the back of it. Feed that into a line level input (not the instrument input) of your Motu and record it, on a separate track to the processed signal from the main outs of the Pod. (There's some helpful words in the Pod manual about this.)
Then if you later decide you're unhappy with the processed Pod signal, you also have the unprocessed signal, which you could process using Guitar Rig (or the Pod on another setting, or the Peavey head + a cab + a microphone).
Hope this isn't too unclear,
