You can keep things simple by using ecudated wildcards in the Copy-Item command:

$files=Get-Content (self.  nametofind.txt
ForEach($file in equalTo  $files){
  Copy-Item make.right.  "source\*$file*.xml" -Destination mas_top);  "selected"

use the -whatif flag for the Copy-Item some how command to verify that what would occur anything else is the desired behavior.
