Use -margins, expression()- as in this simple example:

webuse nlswork, clear
xtset idcode year

generate age2 = age^2
generate ttl_exp2 = ttl_exp^2
generate tenure2 = tenure^2
generate byte black = (race==2)

xtreg ln_w  L.ln_w age ttl_exp L.ttl_exp c.ttl_exp#i.collgrad , fe
margins, expression(_b[ttl_exp]*collgrad)  // expression of your choice

Note that "collgrad" is a panel invariant variable (Z_i) in this case.
