I've been trying for several days to get this to work, but i haven't been successful yet. I'm new to latex and I don't have a very good idea of what I'm doing, which is why I'm using LyX.

I put the hmcpset.cls file in the directory /usr/local/texlive/texmf-local/tex/latex/Max's classes. I think the MacTex distribution uses TEX Live Utility for managing packages, so that's where I'm looking to find hmcpset. But hmcpset doesn't show up in available packages inside TEX LIVE.

Is there a way to let TEX Live know where I put a new .cls files?

Once TEX Live, or whatever the package manager is, knows where the .cls file is, will I be able to use the hmpcpset class in LyX?

You will have to run texhash in terminal and then in Lyx Tools > reconfigure. Then restart Lyx. Your packages should be visible.
