How do I determine the identity of a window that I would like to capture an image of with the 'import -window' command?

Use xwininfo to extract the window id which you can then pass to the import program.

Basically you need to use xwininfo, or some other method, to determine the X window ID. For example, XTerms also include a WINDOWID environment variable.

For the whole screen you can just specify 'root'.
