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  

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:

\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

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