I am not sure what you are looking for:

- Do you want to get access to the estimates of sigma_e and sigma_u
after you have estimated your model with -xtreg-?
The answer is discussed in: M.L. Buis (2011) "Stata tip 97: Getting at
rhos and sigmas", The Stata Journal, 11(2), pp. 315-317.

- Do you want to know how Stata estimated these coefficients?
The answer is maximum likelihood

Hope this helps,
Maarten
