I'm using the Saml2SPInitiated_2010 sample code pattern to interact with a service provider.  The service provider gave me their XML EntityDescriptor metafile, which includes a X509Certificate section.  However, Saml2SPInitiated_2010 sample project uses a CER file.

How do I read in the xml metafile's X509Certificate and covert it to a CER? e.g. like what the Saml2SPInitiated_2010 is doing?

Can I do this in code so I don't have to use a CER file (e.g. convert the X509Certificate section to a X509Certificate2)? Then use that to decrypt AuthnRequest, etc.
