Make sure you use a recent XFree86 and the xterm that comes with
it should be fine.  If you run it in a Unicode locale (like
zh_TW.UTF-8), xterm will recognise that and enable multibyte
support automatically.  (I don't know if that works for Big5 or GB
locales, too, but I don't really bother about anything but Unicode
anymore.)  I don't know if you need to explicitly set the fonts,
it probably has reasonable defaults, but anyway, I have

   XTerm*VT100*font: -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--18-120-100-100-c-90-iso10646-1
   XTerm*VT100*wideFont: -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal-ja-18-120-100-100-c-180-iso10646-1

in my ~/.Xresources.  Those fonts come standard with recent
XFree86 versions.
