    I just got a Motorola Xoom, and I'm looking for some apps.

    I need app(s) that can allow me to edit PDF's, kinda like adobe PDF on the computer. I also need a app that will allow me to edit microsoft office formats. I need to be able to view/edit .xls, and other microsoft formats.

    Also, is there a app that will allow me to print on my home printer, connected to a printer? Atlas, the printer is not wireless.

    And for the last question, what's the best site to look up android apps online?

    Editing Office Apps for even Docx, XLSx is possible. There are a couple of choices out there. BUT, there is not a PDF editor available yet. The issues would not be impossible to tackle, but the built in differences and DRM of some PDF formats make editing impossible. ie, a JPG rendered into a PDF is not editable.
    I use QuickOffice HD, but you should find the one which meets your needs.
    The most important thing to remember Android is a different OS and Microsoft Office is proprietary.

    I use Documents To Go. As for printing, wireless is painless. Have you looked at Chrome? A bit of research about the Chrome browser and mobile printing might point you in the right direction.
