The only way to get all metadata into a file is to create an embedded AAF file which I believe only Avid products do. Even Resolve using Avid's SDK to create MXF OPatom native media only puts in REEL which becomes TAPE in Media Composer, but all other metadata like scene, take, comments, etc. are lost. Resolve does export an ALE file that can be merged into the master clips.

In your case, the XMP sidecar file is only seen by applications that support XMP as a sidecar file. So all of Adobe CC for starters. Something to try is opening those clips in Premiere Pro and exporting an ALE file. Some text editing may be needed, but let us know if you get can far and we can discuss ALE tricks.
