I see the field you're referring to, and it shouldn't be a problem to send it to a custom field. I will provide instructions on that down below.
As a side note, though, I do have a related concern. According to your link, the requirements for including the NIHMS ID in documents seem to be conditional... IF there's no PMCID, THEN add the NIHMS ID instead. This isn't a problem for import, but it is a style issue; EndNote doesn't really have a way to include things in the bibliography on a conditional basis. It's either there in the bibliography all the time, or it's not included. You will have to decide whether it makes more sense to edit your style to always include the NIHMS and then later take out any that aren't needed, or if it'd be easier to just manually add them later where they are needed.
That said, let's return to our import issue. Here's how to manually edit your filter to bring in the NIHMS ID:

Yes, that modification seems to work. However, I'd prefer the NIHMSID to be included as a separate field, such as custom 3, so that there is a spot to include it and use it, if necessary.
Maybe conditional logic in styles can be an enhancement for EN X3.

You should be able to do that with the instructions I gave. When it you select your Field in the template window, you can select whatever field you like... including Custom 3.
If you can't see Custom 3 in your records even after making that change, you may need to edit your journal reference type to show Custom 3. Instructions on modifying reference types is found on page 392 of the EndNote X1.0.1 manual for Windows.

One workaround I have used for this kind of thing, is to create a new reference type which has an output with the alternative information in the style for that ref type.
Search library for a blank in PMCID and ref type "journal article" (probably add year range, for recent) and then change the reference type to the alternative reference type where the style will output the NIHMS ID instead. If an article gets a PMCID assigned, you wil need to alter the record to include that information and you can then also alter the ref type at the same time.

I know this goes a little beyond the scope of EndNote, but here is some information on the NIHMSID (MID as you called it) and why it doesn't show up in PubMed. The NIHMSID is assigned when the article is submitted through the NIH Manuscript Submission System (by the author) or sent in an email to the author after the journal sends it to the NIH Manuscript Submission System. Since the article is not necessarily available to the public in PubMed Central right away, the NIHMSID does not appear in the citation in PubMed. The NIHMSID will appear in PubMed Central after it is released (up to 12 months later) but at that time the PMCID is also given, so it's not much help.
Just fyi as of May 30, the PMCID appears in that record now too, so I do see the MID in the MEDLINE format or the record. I have never seen PubMed list the MID without the PMCID, so I'm not sure they list it before the record has a PMCID. Please correct me if I am wrong as I am the Instruction Librarian for my campus and need to know how to correctly follow NIH guidelines.
