you have to build intl-extension from php source code on your own. If you have some experiences using the terminal it won't be hard to do.

First make sure you installed Xcode and started it at least once to finish installation and accept license agreement.
Download latest version of autoconf from Its a prerequisite to build php modules which is not shipped with macOS.
Extract the file and open a terminal in macOS and open the extracted folder using cd command.
Afterwards use commands:
sudo make install (your password is required, make sure you are an admin user in macOS)

Download the version of php you use in xampp from
Extract it and open the extracted folder in a terminal using cd.
Change to subfolder ext/intl.
Run these commands to build the extension:
./configure --enable-intl --with-php-config=/Applications/XAMPP/bin/php-config --with-icu-dir=/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/
sudo make install (password required)
Delete all files you downloaded and also the extracted folders.
Add to php.ini file in xampp/etc folder line

Since intl-extension has to be compiled anew each time you installed a new version of xampp I wrote a shell script to do this for me.
