Presumably you setup the non-mcidas environment by sourcing the 
(for Bourne Shell; use admin/user_env.csh for C-like shells) script in your
'awips' login to setup the environment for running McIDAS commands.  If yes,
please remember that you should have created a ~awips/mcidas/data hierarchy

No worries.

I am not sure exactly what you are asking...

Oh, I think I see now.

There will be a conversion from Himawari native format to McIDAS AREA
in the IMGCOPY execution... the Himawari ADDE server knows how to interpret
the native format and return it to the calling program (e.g., IMGCOPY) in
synthesized AREA format.  On output, the data will be written to standard
McIDAS AREA files, so I believe the answer to your question is NO, you
don't have to do anything extra/different.
