Hi Matias,
You can create a plugin that defines a new data source that will open your ncml 
and use it for any selected file. Attached is an example jar plugin that has 
another ncml file. 


Unjar the file.
Change your ncml above so your location is an attribute with a macro:
<netcdf xmlns="http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/namespaces/netcdf/ncml-2.2"; 
location="%location%">
Change the datasource.xml in the example to point to your ncml file:
     ncmltemplate="/example.ncml"
Just jar up the 2 files and install it as your plugin.

By the way - you can take this same template ncml file and add it as an 
attachment to your data files in RAMADDA (or to a ancestor folder with 
inherit=true) and RAMADDA will use this ncml template when opening up the data 
files for opendap, etc.
