I've been experimenting with PC and DOS emulators and I have hit a stumbling block with PCE (http://www.hampa.ch/pce/pce-ibmpc.html).

I am unable to figure out how to add software to the C drive. The C drive appears to be the windows file hd0.pimg. But I am unable to manipulate .pimg files with imaging software such as DAEMON Tools.

Does anyone have any experience with PCE that would help me install software (in this case Microsoft Macro Assembler) in PCE?

The usual workflow is:
* obtain floppy images of the software you want to install (or create them with winimage)
* install them inside the virtual PC as you would on a regular PC (unzip, setup.exe, whatever)

That being said, I guess *.pimg files are probably just renamed *.img files. Try renaming them and opening them in winimage or some other tool
