I know that you can use \setmainfont for normal text but is there any command that will apply a font only to headers (chapters, sections, subsections)?

Using fontspec, you can define any font you want in XeTeX. You can then use them in the places of your choice by using the macro names you chose.

If you want to change the fonts used in sections, you can combine fontspec with titlesec. Example:

\setmainfont{Linux Libertine O}
\newfontfamily\secfont{EB Garamond}


  {\secstyle} % format
  {} % label
  {10pt} % sep
  {} % before
  [\normalfont] % after

will use Linux Libertine O as main font and EB Garamond as section font.
