I am pretty sure that the hdm file from your Polhemus software is NOT
the same as the hdm file generated by our CTF software.

No, the two toolboxes do not share code. BrainStorm is probably
better suited for making EEG head models (at the Donders we mainly
use our MEG system if we plan to do source reconstruction). I suspect
that it would not be very difficult to use a headmodel generated
using BrainStorm in FT, but it will also not be trivial.

MRIviewer is a CTF/MEG specific software (it comes with the CTF
software) and cannot be used for construction EEG head models.
Instead have a look at
