Basically all you need to do is clone all definitions of \chapter and
related commands as \part (or \interlude), copying the numbering
setup / counter from \part --- this would include the ToC-related
macros. I suggested working off of \part 'cause if memory serves,
it's already set up to number separately and not re-start \chapter
numbering.

The Memoir manual is very detailed, and the documented source code is
_very_ well-explained.

Or just use Kai's suggestion and manually handle the numbering:

\documentclass{memoir}
\begin{document}
\chapter{Intro}
\chapter{Stuff}
\chapter*{Interlude 1}%remember to update number by hand if need be
\chapter{More Stuff}
\chapter*{Interlude 2}%remember to update number by hand if need be
\end{document}

If there aren't a lot of them, that's probably the most expedient
thing to do.
