The LyX endnote module uses the LaTeX endnote package, and so it would require 
some LaTeX hacking to change things much I think.  Memoir has its own commands 
to put notes at the end(it calls them pagenotes so as not to conflict with the 
endnotes package).  The memoir commands are not the same, but the class does 
provide all the same functionality, and a little more I believe.  I've been 
using memoir for  a short while, and so I have a little familiarity there, and 
I tried to hack something up from things I found before in the memoir manual.

*I'm new to the whole LaTeX thing, so it's probably pretty ugly, and the long 
way around, but it is working fine for me here (LyX 2.0 beta).
*this will only work with the memoir class because it is built on 
class-specific commands.

I wasn't sure exactly what result you wanted, but basically, what I've done is 
made memoir convert footnotes to endnotes, and hang the paragraphs off of the 
note numbers (I assume that is what you meant by "indented for all lines").  
There are two possible options (available by commenting/uncommenting a few 
appropriate lines): either to hang the paragraphs of of a superscript without a 
space, or to hang the paragraphs off of normal text size numbers with a period 
and a space. 

You should be able to copy the code below straight into the preamble section of 
your document settings, and then the only thing you have to do is put the 
following into ERT in LyX at the end of each chapter:


The memoir package manual has a lot more detail on endnotes in section 17.4, 
and some helpful background in chapter 12.




%%%%%% Depends on memoir
%       tell memoir to use endnotes

%       use Lyx footnote apparatus, but have memoir convert to endnotes

%       setup memoir for notes at the end of chapters

%       prepare a new length for the width of the note numbers;  to be used 

%       tell memoir to hang the paragraphs from the width of the note numbers

%       add some space between notes

%:====> use for hanging notes from normal text size numbers

%       tell LaTeX to reserve note number space wide enough for the number 99. 
and a space, in normal font
\settowidth{\notenumberlength}{\normalfont 99.\space}

%       tell memoir to typeset the note numbers as flushright in their own box

%:====> use for hanging the notes from superscript numbers.
%       tell LaTeX to reserve enough space for 99 notes, superscript size

%       tell memoir to typeset the note numbers as flushright (rightjustified).
